Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Barston? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and CON29. The Local Land Charge Register 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 land, whether the house 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 title is in need of an improvement or renovation grant. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

Do you recommend that we get an Environmental enquiry on the property that we are buying in Barston? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental check on the ground you intend to purchase which is available from a number of suppliers including Landmark. The environmental enquiry results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a certificate from an environmental expert confirming whether or not the properties, based upon the information revealed by the search, could be classified contaminated land by the London Borough/council.

Why is a a CON29 DW search crucial if you want to extent or alter the house in Barston? One of the basic details shows the location of any public sewer within the property you are interested in. This is significant because if you want to build over a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may hinder what you want to build and/or make the addition cost more.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are often several related purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests 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 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 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 costs incurred to sustain the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barston 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 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 Barston

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

We see that you do not have an office in Barston? Is this a issue? No because like all modern practices we rely on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with expeditiously. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Barston).

What is a first time buyer? The classification of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office is an person who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the England or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main house. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I buy a new home to live in but do not sell my present house what is the Stamp Duty Land Tax position? 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 forty thousand pounds. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional payments 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 managing agents also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords and management companies 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 house in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures 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 responses often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is around £200-300 but is can be higher in rare cases. Second, the lease could contains a provision for the outgoing to pay a payment to the landlord based on a % of the sale price which is sometimes 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Barston.

Barston is a village and civil parish in Metropolitan Borough of Solihull in the West Midlands of England. It is approximately 4 miles (6.5 km) east of Solihull and is located inside a large meander of the River Blythe, at the western edge of the Meriden Gap, and midway between the far larger villages of Balsall Common and Hampton-in-Arden. The nearest large city is Birmingham, 11 miles (18 km) away to the west. According to the 2001 UK Census, the parish had a population of 499, increasing to 533 at the 2011 Census.

The village has many historic buildings, some of which are timber-framed. The Church of St. Swithin is a Church of England church which dates from 1721, and is built on the site of an earlier church. The village also possesses two pubs, The Bulls Head and The Malt Shovel, and about 50 residential properties. The Barston Memorial Institute, opposite the Bulls Head, hosts many village activities with a Friday night youth club and regular Art Classes as well as the Barston WI and U3A meetings. There is no bus service or any other form of public transport in the village, although an abandoned bus stop still exists at the end of the central road of Barston, Oak Lane, which is left over from an old-school service from the 1970s and 1980s. Next to the bus stop is an old-fashioned red phone box.

The footballer Robbie Keane owned a house in Barston from 1999 to 2000, whilst playing for Coventry City F.C..
