The second part of the search – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is adopted, proposals for new major roads, rail schemes or planning history relating to the land. The replies 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.

We would always recommend an environmental check on the land parcel you intend to purchase which is available from a number of suppliers including Landmark. The environmental check results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the area, based upon the information revealed by the search, is likely to be officially names as contaminated land by the London Borough/council.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer timeframe if you are trading trading down and have a lot of items to clear. You can accelerate the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete together. However your choice depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

Always check what you are buying? We will always show 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 mistakes a buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea 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 consumers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the house is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the property 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 property it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all bills required to upkeep the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barnsley 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 pounds to the freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the freeholder setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the upkeep of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Barnsley

Are you on the panel of Barclays Bank plc? 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 Barnsley.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying three hundred thousand pounds or lower for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax. If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and £500k will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . If the price is over five hundred thousand pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am Buying my first house and I already own a share in another home or a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? This is complex. In certain circumstances you will not need to pay this for example if you have recently inherited a share in a property. We would need to advise you specifically on this.

If we are buying a flat what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our 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 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 £550. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation mainly it is approximately £300 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease often contains a mechanism for the selling to pay a charge to the landlord based on a % of the sale price which is often around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Barnsley.

Barnsley () is a large market and college town in South Yorkshire, England, between Leeds and Sheffield in the Dearne Valley. Historically in the West Riding of Yorkshire, the town is surrounded by several smaller towns and villages, which together form the Metropolitan Borough of Barnsley, of which Barnsley is the administrative centre. At the 2011 Census, Barnsley had a population of 91,297.

Barnsley’s former industries include linen, coal mining, glassmaking and textiles. These declined in the 20th century, but Barnsley’s culture is rooted in its industrial heritage and it has a tradition of brass bands, originally created as social clubs by its mining communities. It is also home of the Barnsley chop.

The town is on the M1 motorway and Barnsley Interchange railway station on the Hallam and Penistone Lines. Barnsley F.C. football club has competed in the second tier of English football for most of its history, but won the FA Cup in 1912 and competed in the Premier League during the 1997-98 season.
