Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Barbrook? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The second part of the search – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new major roads, railway schemes or building consents relating to the house. The search can also include outstanding statutory notices, breaches of planning or building regulations or the existence of a compulsory purchase order. Environmental factors, such as whether the house stands on contaminated land or in a Radon gas affected area are also covered but see out comments on Environmental Searches also.

Do we need environmental searches in Barbrook? Statutory laws have resulted in a clear-up system for contaminated property. The basic position is that the polluter should pay however where that party cannot be found (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into bankruptcy the liability for clean-up costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in Barbrook you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the land parcel in Barbrook is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other results does a a CON29DW contain? A a CON29 DW search confirms to a prospective interested party that the land they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the previous owner has constructed an extension close to a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

Amazing service provided by Mouzzam Yamin. Thanks so much for your help with this purchase. You kept us informed regularly and always responded quickly to our enquires. We would definitely use you again and would highly recommend you. Mark and Mouzzam were professional and informative and gave me help every step of the way to buy my first property without a hitch. During such a time it really helped to feel that my solicitors were on hand if i needed any advice. I would definitely recommend and use again.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

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 originally paper documents – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but these days the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The unregistered title deeds are usually stored by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time in Barbrook you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

Are you able to manage Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Barbrook.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and half a million pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty if I am buying a buy to let in Barbrook? 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 SDLT for each band for all property over £40k. If you select “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 maisonette what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by landlords 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 maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. The costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £300 but is can be more in rare 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 2 flats.

About Barbrook.

Barbrook is a village in Devon, England. It is close to the source of the West Lyn River.

The village post office and shop closed on 27 September 2008. The listed former school house is beside the A39. There is currently a petrol station and shop at the junction of the A39 and B3234.

Barbrook was affected by the 1952 Lynmouth Flood. A sign showing the height of the floodwater can be seen in Cherrybridge and there is a memorial garden on the site of 2 houses which fell into the river. The original stone arched road bridge on the site of the current foot bridge was destroyed and a new bridge was constructed further upstream, a house was demolished to make way for the new roadway. The river channel was enlarged to prevent future problems.

In the early part of the 1900s it was mostly surrounded by conifer plantations, these were felled and have now been replaced by deciduous woodland.

Barbrook means “Babbling Brook”, in 1650 it was known as Babbroke.
