Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they seek when they are purchasing a property and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such buyers think they know what a Enquiries of the local authority search will reveal and may know about the Barrowford or surrounding area however most solicitors will still counsel for one. One of the main reasons is that the Local Authority search is the only place to reveal monies due to the Local Authority and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

Do you recommend that both of us ask for an Environmental search on the property that we are buying in Barrowford? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental search on the area you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search providers including Future Climate. The environmental enquiry results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the property, based upon the information revealed by the search, is likely to be classified contaminated land by the council.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively average sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your house to take possibly eight and twelve weeks.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms 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 paid referral 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 bundles of papers – 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 land for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Barrowford you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Barrowford

Are you able to manage a mortgage with Chorley Building Society in Barrowford? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to manage Help to Buy ISAs in Barrowford? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

What is a first time buyer? The definition of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main residence. 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 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 payments can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. 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 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 maisonette in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information packs often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £300 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease could contains a mechanism for the outgoing to pay a fee to the freeholder based on a percentage of the sale price which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Barrowford.

Barrowford () is a large village and civil parish in the Pendle district of Lancashire, England. It is situated to the north of Nelson on the other side of the M65 motorway, and forms part of the Nelson conurbation. It also comprises the area of Lowerford (not to be confused with its neighbour Higherford). The parish has a population of 6,171.

Barrowford is situated on the Marsden–Gisburn–Long Preston turnpike. One of the original toll houses, dating from 1804–05, can still be seen at the junction with the road to Colne, complete with a reproduction of the table of tolls which were paid.

The toll house was restored in the 1980s and is owned by the trust which operates nearby Pendle Heritage Centre. Barrowford is located about half a mile from the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, and a set of seven locks leads to the highest section of the canal between Barrowford and Barnoldswick.

About a mile on from the locks heading towards Leeds is Foulridge Tunnel known locally as the “Mile Tunnel”. The packhorse bridge near Higherford Mill is the oldest in Barrowford, dating back to the end of the 16th century. It formerly lay on the old main road to Gisburn, which was superseded by the Turnpike road built in 1804. In September 2006, this mill was featured on the programme by BBC, Restoration.

The village has a modern Anglican church (St Thomas’) built to replace the original church of 1839, which burnt down in 1964.

St Thomas’s Primary School recently moved from its Victorian premises to a new building next door to the church. The village has two rivers: Pendle Water, which flows through the town with trout that can often be seen, and Colne Water, which joins Pendle Water behind the site of the now demolished Samuel Holden cotton mill and flows down from the moors above the town of Colne; again this river holds good trout.

According to the United Kingdom Census 2011, the parish has a population of 6,171, a small increase from 6,039 in the 2001 census.
