Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Battlesbridge? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and CON29. The LLC1 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 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 house is situated in a smoke control zone. All LLC1 registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

The search provides data of present and past contamination risks together with a statement from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the site might be officially names as contaminated land by the local council. It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flooding 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 in an area where radon readings are over 100 Bq m-3.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long do conveyancing searches take? This depends on how quickly each organisation takes to respond.Many local authorities will turn searches round in about a week, some in a matter of days, but some can take up to six weeks to respond.

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 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 payment 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 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 kept 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 time now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Battlesbridge you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

What is a first time buyer? The description of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . A first time buyer according to the Taxman 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 home. If you select “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 house 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 house within three years.

If we are buying a flat what additional costs 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing replies often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation mainly it is around £2500 but is can be higher in extreme cases. Second, the lease could contains a agreement for the outgoing to pay a charge to the freeholder based on a % of the market value which is often 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Battlesbridge.

Battlesbridge is a village in Essex, England in the civil parish of Rettendon. It is a suburb of the town Wickford and falls under the postal codes used in Wickford. The village straddles the tidal River Crouch approximately 14 km (9 miles) south-southeast of Chelmsford.

The bridge over the River Crouch was kept in repair from the earliest days by the Bataille family, hence the name of the hamlet. Today it is home to a number of antiques centres, one of which is a former mill.

Battlesbridge is a conservation area which was jointly designated by Chelmsford Borough Council (north side of the river) and Rochford District Council (south side of the river) in February
1992 and March 1992 respectively.[citation needed]

The Tidal Gates were replaced in 2008. The new gates weighing 19 tonnes, were constructed using pine beams and metal sluices. The basic work was completed by Roy Hart and his son Justin. Woodham Ferrers engineers the Keeble brothers, assisted with some of the more specialised milling.

The design and draughtsmanship for the working drawings was entirely the work of Roy.

The village is served by Battlesbridge railway station on the Crouch Valley Line.

Classic Car and Motorbike shows are held here each year.[citation needed]

The Battlesbridge Rural Theatre puts on shows in aid of Charities.[citation needed]
