Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Barwell? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 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 title, 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 land is situated in a smoke control zone. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

I am advised that the Con29 Searches in Barwell will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? No. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of identifying polluted areas and recording these land on registers – this is a process which will take a many years to complete. Needless to say any properties included within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Con29 Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the home in Barwell is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other details does a drainage search show? A Drainage & Water Enquiry shows to a future owner that the land they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the owner has constructed an extension over a public drain. It also shows a raft of other data such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively normal sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your house to take possibly 2 to 3 months.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when obtaining a quote what disbursements apply to your sale and query any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £125 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £125 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In truth it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound more competitive by adding on fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you download 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 ground it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all outlays necessary to upkeep the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Barwell 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 pay jointly to the maintenance of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Barwell

Are you on the panel of Melton Mowbray Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

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

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 Taxman is an individual 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 home. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If I am buying and selling a home which I live in and I own a buy to let will I pay higher rate stamp duty? No provided both properties (sale and purchase) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new property before you sell (even if the gap is 1 day then you need to pay the higher rate of duty and then claim it back. You can request a refund for the amount above the normal Stamp Duty rates provided you sell your previous main home within 3 years.

If we are buying a flat what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our on line quote. 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 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat in a retirement development what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. 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 questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company usually it is around £200-300 but is can be higher in rare cases. Second, the lease often contains a clause for the assignor to pay a charge to the management company based on a percentage of the market value which is often around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Barwell.

Barwell is a civil parish and large village in Leicestershire, England, with a population of around 8,750 people, Increasing to 9,022 at the 2011 census, the name literally translates as “Stream of the Boar” and is said to originate from a boar that used to drink from the well near a brook in Barwell. It was originally known as Borewell, but later became “Barwell”, the name in use today. The brook is now called the River Tweed, and is a tributary of the River Trent.

The village has two churches; Barwell Methodist Church in Chapel Street, and St. Mary’s Parish Church in Church Lane. St. Mary’s was built in 1220. A board inside the church lists all of the rectors up to the present day, beginning with William in 1209.

The village has successful football clubs Barwell FC and AFC Barwell as well cricket teams and a large indoor bowling complex.

The Queens Head is the oldest public house, and second oldest building in the village. In 1902 the pub was owned by one Sarah Ann Powers. It was later owned by the Haines family. In recent years, the old pub roof has naturally deformed so that it is no longer straight. In the 1980s the front of the building was completely restored and returned to its original style after years of Victorian style black and white.
