Whilst this is to a lawyers and lenders an essential element of the home buying process to customers the need for this may be somewhat of a mystery.

It may also reveal other information such as whether the property is within a flood area 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.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is always likely to be a mortgage loan to apply for and it should be noted that a conveyancing solicitor cannot rely on a informal confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. The Solicitor should have sight of your formal written offer of mortgage in order that they may (i) verify that you are getting the loan you need and ensure that you can comply with any special conditions imposed in the mortgage terms.

Always check what you are acquiring? We will always show you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the most common mistakes a home buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the land parcel to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re acquiring on site. All too often home buyers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the site is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the land doesn’t include this area. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a property. Historically these were originally bundles of papers – 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 unregistered title deeds are usually stored 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 period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time scale in Bedham you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Bedham

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

We note that you do not have an office in Bedham? Is this a issue? No because like all modern firms of lawyers we rely on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with swiftly. 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 Bedham).

What is a first time buyer? The characterisation of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the Taxman is an real person 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 chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 SDLT 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 £40,000. If you select “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 figures up front in our 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We have obtained probate for our mother estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As administrators of the Estate you can sell and our costs remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.

About Bedham.

Bedham is a hamlet 4 kilometres (2½ miles) east of Petworth in the Chichester District of West Sussex, England. It is in the civil parish of Wisborough Green.

Bedham consists of a farm, a derelict Victorian school, and a scattering of houses set high on a wooded sandstone ridge of the western Weald, at 150 metres above sea level. To the west Flexham Park is an area of commercial woodland, with large areas of chestnut coppice, and south of this is a sandstone quarry at Bognor Common. To the northeast are large areas of semi-natural forest, left unmanaged as a nature reserve, called The Mens. South of The Mens is Hawkhurst Court, a country house used as a Canadian army HQ in the buildup to the Normandy Invasion during World War II, then as a private school, before becoming private housing in the 1980s.

From the early 20th century Bedham became popular with artists of limited means who wanted to “escape from civilisation”. Remote cottages could be bought for £100. The composer Sir Edward Elgar lived nearby at Brinkwells for a time as a sub-tenant of the artist Rex Vicat Cole, and the studio where Elgar composed his Cello Concerto was moved up to the village and now stands as a separate house. Ford Madox Ford, author of The Good Soldier also lived in the village with Stella Bowen, an Australian artist twenty years his junior. Later residents included Miss Ethel West (d.1950) and her companion Miss Metherell who lived in Bedham Cottage – Miss Metherell using the pen name Rhoda Leigh wrote a fictional account of the hamlet, Past and Passing: Tales from Remote Sussex, which offended some local residents with its thinly veiled and exaggerated references to them. One of those offended was Mrs. Puttick who sold groceries, tobacco and sweets from the kitchen of her house opposite the lane to Warren Barn.

Honour Thy Father – Recollections of Sussex Life over Two and a Half Centuries recounts much Bedham history centred on Mants, the cottage where its author Lillian Hunt’s grandfather lived.
