Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional areas that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental checks in Baunton? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a remediation); water authority searches (which show any public sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

I am told that the Con29 Search in Baunton will show if the land is contaminated. Is that correct? No. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of finding polluted land parcels and recording these properties on registers – this is a process which will take a many years to finish. Needless to say any properties entered within these locations will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Land Charges Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a a CON29DW important if you want to extent or alter the property in Baunton? One of the key replies shows a plan of of any public sewer within the home 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 restrict what you want to build and/or make the works cost more.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Highly recommended! We have used K.E.R for two purchases now, both which had very complicated and long drawn out issues. They were always approachable, gave excellent advice and managed to get to the bottom of all issues. Their patience and …More i was very happy with the services provided by Mouzzam Yamin in relation to a potential property purchase, especially with his prompt responses and communication, which is so important during a lengthy property purchase process.

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 vested interests in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest lawyers 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 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 bills required to upkeep the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Baunton 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 hundred pounds to the landlord 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 leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Baunton

Are you able to oversee a mortgage with Precise Mortgages in Baunton? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to oversee Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Baunton.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or lower for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between £300,000 and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax. If the price is over half a million pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle 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 fees 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 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette in a retirement development what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs 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 assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company often it is approximately £200 but is can be higher in rare cases. Second, the lease usually contains a agreement for the outgoing to pay a charge to the management company based on a percentage of the market value which is sometimes 1% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Baunton.

Baunton is a village and civil parish in the Cotswold district of Gloucestershire, England, located about two miles north of Cirencester on the River Churn.

There is archaeological evidence of human habitation around the village in Prehistoric and Roman times. The village is recorded in Domesday Book in 1086 under the name of Baudintone which means an estate associated with a man called Balda.

The Norman church of St Mary Magdalene was built by the Augustinian monks of Cirencester Abbey as a Chapel of Ease in about 1150. Inside there is large wall painting, probably dating from the 14th century, which depicts St Christopher carrying the Christ Child across a stream. It became the parish church in 1551. The village contains a number of Grade II listed buildings including the 16th century Manor House, and Baunton Mill. The village is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and much of it is classified a Conservation Area.

The Manor of Baunton belonged to a succession of families including the George and Chester Master families. John George of Baunton was MP for Cirencester at the time of the Civil War. He was initially a Parliamentarian, but when his life was spared by the Royalists who had captured him, he converted to the King’s side.

According to the 2001 census it had a population of 290, increasing to 299 at the 2011 census.

The village falls in the ‘Churn Valley’ electoral ward. This ward starts in the south at Baunton and stretches up the valley to Coberley. The total ward population taken at the 2011 census was 1,970.
