Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the property you are purchasing and might not cover developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your local authority covering Barrowford. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the planning departments website by postcode or by map search).

When we ask for a Environmental investigation on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Barrowford what will it reveal? The search provides information of present and past contamination risks together with a assessment from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the area might be classified contaminated land by the council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood plain 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.

Why is a a CON29 DW search indispensable if you want to extent or alter the house in Barrowford? One of the main results shows information of any public sewer within the house you are purchasing. This is significant because if you want to build close to a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may restrict what you want to build and/or make the works cost more.

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 time if you are trading buying 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 desire depend on what  others in the chain will allow.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by conveyancing solicitors to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when getting a estimate what disbursements apply to your matter and question any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £99 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound cheaper by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any written quotes you order contain all costs, disbursements and VAT. Beware of quotes that look a lot cheaper than others – as the saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were traditionally 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 original paper deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Barrowford you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Barrowford

Are you on the panel of TSB Bank? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We see that you do not have an office in Barrowford? Is this a concern? No because like all modern firms of lawyers we depend on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with quickly. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Barrowford).

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 this firm are required to make certain steps to facilitate release of those ISAs including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an option 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 £300,000. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty if I am buying a second home in Barrowford? 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 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 leasehold what additional costs 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional disbursements 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 management companies will vary for providing information often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is around £300 but is can be higher in extreme cases. Second, the lease often contains a mechanism for the assignor to pay a payment to the freeholder based on a percentage of the sale price which is sometimes 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.
