What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional areas that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental searches in Babraham? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a clear-up); water authority searches (which show any public sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

Is there a need environmental investigations in Babraham? Statutory rules have resulted in a clear-up system for polluted sites. The basic position is that the polluter should remediate however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into bankruptcy the liability for clear-up costs passes to the current owner (who could be you).

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

I can honestly say that Mark Sadler is the best property solicitor I have ever experienced and I have dealt with many over the years. I found him on google after 2 days of searching for the answer to a very complicated freehold/leasehold problem. When I called him about our dilemma, Mark knew exactly how to tackle it and he did so with great ease. He dealt with every communication promptly, courteously and efficiently. I could not have asked for more and I am extremely grateful to him for taking on our case. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone with a property related legal issue. Thank you again.

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 easy sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your home to take about 2 to 3 months.

Always check what you are buying? 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 most common errors a customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often purchasers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the house doesn’t include this site. 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 ground it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all outlays needed to sustain the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Babraham 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 nominal ground rent of a few 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 contribute jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Babraham

Are you on the panel of Barclays Bank UK plc? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We are aware that you do not have an office in Babraham? Is this a concern? No because like all modern firms we count on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with expeditiously. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Babraham).

What is a first time buyer? The definition of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the the Government is an real person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK 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” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the SDLT position? 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 £40k. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a flat what additional payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £200-300 but is can be higher in unusual 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 management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple leaseholds.
