How long do Local Authority search searches take? The wait time for a local search LLC1 can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Official Local Authority searches through an electronic search provider some searches are still processed processed manually by the local council. Also the search wait time can be affected by seasonal demand levels and council staffing levels.

I think that the local authority Search in Astrop will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? Not really. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of locating polluted land and recording these properties on registers – this is a process which will take a many years to complete. Needless to say any ground listed within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local authority Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

What is a a CON29 DW search ? A water authority search confirms to a prospective interested party that the site they are acquiring is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly worth knowing in parts of Astrop which are agricultural areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This firm is probably the best I’ve ever dealt with regarding house moves. Mouzzam was very helpful in dealing with queries and very proactive with dealing with requests. It’s good to have a service that contacts you straight away rather than you having to constantly chase for information and answers. Our house move was a very difficult situation brought on by the buyers but he dealt with it in an exemplary and professional manner.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively average sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take around 2 to 3 months.

Always check what you are acquiring? We will always send you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the biggest mistakes a buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the land to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often purchasers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the property is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the land doesn’t include this space. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What is the difference between freehold and leasehold property? If you own a freehold property it invariable means you own a house or bungalow and that includes the whole building and the property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all costs needed to uphold the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Astrop some houses are also leasehold. Leasehold means you effectively lease a property for a number of years – usually a very long period of 99, 125 or even 999 years. You may pay a small ground rent of a few hundred pounds to the landlord each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Astrop

Are you on the panel of Godiva Mortgages Ltd? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

Are you able to oversee Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Astrop.

What is a first time buyer? The classification of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the Revenue is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the England or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main residence. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am buying and selling a home which I live in and I own a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? No provided both properties (sale and purchase) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new property before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day then you need to pay the higher rate of duty and then claim it back. You can request a refund for the amount above the normal Stamp Duty rates provided you sell your previous main property within three years.

If we are buying a flat what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a freeholder and managing agents who both charge. These charges therefore vary considerably with some leasehold purchases the fees can be as low as £10 but in extreme cases the costs charged can be around £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional fees can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation on average it is approximately £300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease may contains a agreement for the assignor to pay a charge to the landlord based on a % of the market value which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.
