Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Barton Mills? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. 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 house, whether the title 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 house is subject to a tree protection order. All LLC1 registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

I heard that the local Enquiries in Barton Mills will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? No. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying polluted land parcels and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a decades to finish. Needless to say any areas named within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

What is a a CON29DW ? A Drainage & Water Enquiry confirms to a prospective buyer that the house they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly important in parts of Barton Mills which are country as there may be a a private drainage system.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are frequently a few linked purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these purchases means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest sale.

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 looking at a estimate what disbursements apply to your purchase 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 £195 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 better by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you obtain 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 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 land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all outlays needed to maintain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barton Mills 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 care of the building in which the flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Barton Mills

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

We see that you do not have an office in Barton Mills? Is this a issue? No because like all modern lawyers we count on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with swiftly. 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 Barton Mills).

What is a first time buyer? The characterisation of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the Revenue is an individual who has never owned an interest in any residential property in the UK 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” option 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 disbursements 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 freeholder and management companies 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.

We are executors of my family estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our expenses remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.

About Barton Mills.

Barton Mills is a village and civil parish in the West Suffolk district of Suffolk, England. The village is on the south bank of the River Lark. According to Eilert Ekwall the meaning of the village name is Corn farm by the mill.

The village was originally called Barton Parva (Little Barton). The name changed to Barton Mills in the eighteenth century.

The Domesday Book records the population of the village in 1086 to be 22 households.

The village is near the Fiveways Roundabout, a busy junction where the A11 London to Norwich trunk road, the A1065 towards North Norfolk and the A1101 (Long Sutton (Lincolnshire) to Bury St. Edmunds) roads meet.

The village was once the holiday retreat for Alexander Fleming, and there is a plaque on the wall outside his country home, The Dhoon, in the main street.

Barton Mills hosts a biannual Scarecrow Festival, held in July. The main road through the village is closed to traffic (except to residents) during the two-day-long festival, which includes musical bands, food, dancing, car boot sales at the local playing fields and viewing scarecrows created by local residents. This festival has been featured in Guinness Book of World Records, boasting the most scarecrows ever built at any one time. The record is currently held by the National Forest Adventure Farm near Burton on Trent.
