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

When we obtain a Environmental enquiry on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Bapchild what will it reveal? The search provides details of present and past pollution risks together with a certificate from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the site is likely to be classified contaminated land by the Local Authority. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flooding area (which may have an effect on the availability and cost of home insurance), whether it is on or near a landfill site and in an area of high subsidence or landslip. It may also shown whether the property is affected by coal mining and high radon area.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is always likely to be a mortgage loan to organise and it should be noted that a lawyer cannot rely on a informal confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. We should have sight of your final written offer of mortgage in order that he may (i) verify that you are getting the advance you need and be sure that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the offer of loan.

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 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 have everything you are responsible for all costs incurred to repair the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bapchild 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 upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Bapchild

Are you on the panel of Marsden Building Society? 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 Bapchild.

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your lawyer are required to make certain checks to facilitate release of those monies including any bonus. If you complete the quote you will see there is an check box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 home 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 if you sell your previous main property within 36 months.

If we are buying a flat what additional fees 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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company on average it is around £200 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease usually contains a mechanism for the assignor to pay a payment to the landlord based on a % of the sale price which is often 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Bapchild.

Bapchild is a village and civil parish in the Swale district of Kent, England, about two miles inside of Sittingbourne. It lies on the old Roman road (Watling Street) now the A2, and according to the 2001 census, the parish had a population of 1,068, including Tonge, increasing to 1,141 at the 2011 Census.

According to Edward Hasted in 1800, it was anciently written ‘Beccanceld’ which is Old English for ‘moist and bleak’ and was mostly a marshland.

According to a late seventh or early eighth century charter, the Synod of Baccanceld was held in Bapchild, but historians now believe that the charter is a forgery.

The village has its own church, the Grade I listed ‘Church of St Lawrence’. in the diocese of Canterbury, in Kent, and in the deanery of Sittingbourne.

Other listed buildings in the parish include, the former post office, No 35, The Street (on the A2 road), and No 1, School Lane

Bapchild was also on the planned extension of the Swale Way (a bypass route, called the ‘Sittingbourne Northern Relief road’ (built in 2010/11)), which passes over the Milton Creek heads from the A249 road (past Kemsley) towards the Eurolink Industrial estate in Murston and then towards the East Hall Farm residential development.
Plans were to extend it, over the railway to Bapchild, and onwards to the Kent Science Park near Highsted, before joining the M2 Motorway, but these have been put on hold due to cost and planning issues.
