How long do Official Local Authority search searches take? The ETA for a Enquiries of the local authority search can vary significantly, from 24 hours to six weeks! Although we order all our Local Authority searches via a website some searches are still processed processed manually by the Local Authority.

Why do we need environmental searches in Awbridge? Statutory rules have resulted in a remediation system for contaminated land parcels. The basic position is that the polluter should fix the problem however where that party cannot be found (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for remediation costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an flat in Awbridge you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the service charge provisions of the lease.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Completed on our first home April 2016 and these guys were brilliant. Freddie Rylah guided us through the process step by step and was always available to answer any questions and help us out. As first time buyers we were reassured at every turn and the whole thing was quick and successful! Would highly recommend.

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

General Conveyancing Tips

There is frequently a mortgage to obtain and it should be noted that a lawyer cannot rely on a quick email by mortgage broker or anyone else. The Firm must have sight of your formal written mortgage offer in order that she may (i) be sure that you are getting the loan you need and verify that you can comply with any special conditions imposed in the mortgage terms.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of players in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest solicitors for you to use. They may make this sound like it is essential for your matter to use these firms. Whilst some are genuine recommendations often there might be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. Ask how much your agent is being paid by the lawyer – you may be surprised at the amount – if they are properly regulated they are meant to tell you. If you want to read more about referral fees see this article from the Daily Mail. Remember that you are free to choose your own lawyer.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were traditionally bundles of papers – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The unregistered title deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Awbridge you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Awbridge

Are you able to handle a mortgage with Melton Mowbray Building Society in Awbridge? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

What Stamp Duty if I am buying a second home in Awbridge? Buyers of additional residential properties, such as second homes and buy-to-let properties, will have to pay an extra 3% in on top of current rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax for each band for all property over £40,000. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords and management companies 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company often it is approximately £2500 but is can be higher in extreme cases. Also in some cases you may not be charged – this will be restricted usually to either share of freehold where the residents run the block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into two flats.

About Awbridge.

Awbridge is a small village and civil parish in the Test Valley district of Hampshire, England, about three miles northwest of Romsey, and near the River Test. According to the 2001 census the parish, which includes the villages of Awbridge, Upper Ratley and Lower Ratley, had a population of 695, increasing to 712 at the 2011 Census. Commonly the terms Upper and Lower Ratley are dropped, with locals referring to the entire area as Awbridge. Confusingly, the intersection through the village of its 3 main roads, location of the village school, and previously Post Office, is in Upper Ratley, and is denoted on Maps as such, with the mapped location of Awbridge being further towards Romsey than is generally accepted.

As if this naming ambiguity is not enough, there is often a ‘Kent’s Oak’, listed on maps of the area as if this were also a location in its own right. It is a large oak tree in the corner of the school field, and despite its impressive size and age is no more than a local landmark, and not another village. As well though there exists a fine house, now a home for the elderly named Kent’s Oak which was formerly a children’s home run by Hampshire County Council. Adjacent is Little Kent’s Oak – another house built in later years though of similar appearance yet smaller.

Locally, the name of the village is pronounced ‘A-bridge’, with the letter ‘w’ silent. This pronunciation can be the subject of some snobbery (and reverse-snobbery).

It is within walking distance of Kimbridge, Dunbridge and Mottisfont, with Dunbridge providing a railway link to both Salisbury (to the north west) and Southampton (to the south).
