Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Barrasford? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and CON29. The Local Land Charges search covers any charges or attendant restrictions relating to land or property. These can include information on debts due to the local authority which are attached to the house, whether the land is a listed building or located in a conservation area, subject to any planning agreements and conditional planning permissions and a host of other information including whether the land is in need of an improvement or renovation grant. All LLC1 registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

When we order an Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Barrasford what will it reveal? The search provides data of present and past pollution risks together with a report from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the ground is likely to be classified contaminated land by the local council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood risk 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 radon risks.

Why is a Drainage & Water Enquiry useful if you want to extent or alter the site in Barrasford? One of the decisive results shows the location of any public sewer within the home you are purchasing.

This may control what you want to build and/or make the design more expensive.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Mouzzam was extremely helpful with our sale and purchase. Always quick to answer my frequent emails and kept us up to date with the whole process of buying and selling our home. I couldn’t fault the service that we recieved and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for conveyancing. We have now used KER on three separate occasions for a property purchase, sale and lease extension. On all occasions Mouzzam has provided a thorough, professional and prompt service. We would recommend KER. Very professional, prompt and efficient service.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is commonly mortgage finance to organise and it should be noted that a solicitor cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. We should have sight of your formal written mortgage offer in order that he may (i) be sure that you are getting the loan you need and be able to check that you can comply with any lender’s conditions imposed in the mortgage offer.

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 home buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea to visit the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land parcel is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the land doesn’t include this land. 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 own everything you are responsible for all bills required to repair the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barrasford 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 minor 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 care of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Barrasford

Are you able to conduct a mortgage with Atom Bank in Barrasford? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

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 £300k and half a million pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over £500,000 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 Barrasford? 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 for each band for all property over £40k. If you chose “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 flat what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and management companies 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We are executors of our family estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our legal fees remain the same as our standard quote for this type of Seller.

About Barrasford.

Barrasford is a village in Northumberland, England. It is situated to the north of Hexham, on the North Tyne. Barrasford is an ancient village that lies within the shadow of Haughton Castle. The village is notable for being the location of a Bronze Age burial site where the Reaverhill Dagger was excavated in 1964. Today Barrasford is noted for its quarry.

The scourge of tuberculosis lent urgency to the need for action in the North East. In 1902 a subscription fund was set up to finance the building of a sanatorium to treat patients. William Watson-Armstrong, who became Baron Armstrong after the death of his great uncle Lord Armstrong of Cragside, gave £4000 – equivalent to £350,000 today.

The Newcastle upon Tyne and Northumberland sanatorium opened in 1907 on the moors above the neighbouring villages of Barrasford and Gunnerton. It treated victims of tuberculosis at a time when 60,000 people a year were dying from the disease in England and Wales, and the annual mortality rate in Newcastle alone was nearly 600.

In 1974 Barrasford was the setting for the “Affairs and Relations” episode of Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads?.
