Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Official Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they ask us to order when they are purchasing a property and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such buyers think they know what a Local Authority search will reveal and may know about the Belsay or surrounding locale however most conveyancing solicitors will still advise one. One of the main reasons is that the Local Authority search is the only place to reveal debts to the local council and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

When we get a Environmental search on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Belsay what will it reveal? The search provides data of present and past contamination risks together with a assessment from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the ground could be officially names as contaminated land by the Local Authority. 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. It may also shown whether the property is affected by coal mining and radon risks.

What is a water authority search ? A a CON29DW confirms to a new owner that the home they are acquiring is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage. This is particularly significant in parts of Belsay which are agricultural areas as there may be a a private drainage system.

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 conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms of 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 paid referral 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 property it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all expenses needed to repair the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Belsay 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 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 maintenance of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

Are you able to handle Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Belsay.

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 Inland Revenue is an person 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 house. If you press “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 Stamp Duty 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 SDLT for each band for all property over £40k. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a flat what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. 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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional fees 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 landlords and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company on average it is approximately £200 but is can be higher in unusual cases. Second, the lease usually contains a clause for the selling to pay a fee to the landlord based on a % 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 Belsay.

Belsay is a village and civil parish in Northumberland, England. The village is about 5 miles from Ponteland on the A696, which links the village with Newcastle upon Tyne and Jedburgh. The population of the civil parish was 436 at the 2001 census, increasing to 518 at the 2011 Census.

Scottish nobleman and doctor John de Strivelyn was granted the manor around 1340 by Edward III. On his death, the estate passed to his daughter, who was married to Sir John Middleton, and has remained with the Middleton family since.

Belsay parish includes the former parishes of Bitchfield, Black Heddon, Bolam, Bolam Vicarage, Bradford, Gallowhill, Harnham, Newham, Shortflatt, Trewick, and Wallridge.

Belsay is home to Belsay Castle, a fine medieval castle, and to Belsay Hall.

Belsay Castle is a 14th-century medieval castle situated at Belsay. It is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and a Grade I listed building.

The main structure, a three-storey rectangular pele tower with rounded turrets and battlements, was constructed about 1370, and was the home of the Middleton family. In 1614 Thomas Middleton built a new manor house attached to the tower. A west wing was added in 1711 but was later largely demolished in 1872 by Sir Arthur Middleton when the remainder of the house was considerably altered.

The castle was abandoned as a residence by the family in the early 19th century when Sir Charles Monck built Belsay Hall close by. It is administered by English Heritage and is open the public.

Belsay Hall is a 19th-century country mansion and a Grade I listed building. The house was built between 1810 and 1817 for Sir Charles Monck (then of Belsay Castle close by). Sir Charles himself was the designer of the building. It is a notable and early classical building. The house measures 100 feet (30 m) square with a lower kitchen wing attached to the north side. It is in two storeys.
The hall was the residence of the Middleton family until 1962.[citation needed]

15th-century Bitchfield Tower and Shortflatt Tower are in the parish.

Aruna Ratanagiri Buddhist Monastery lies on a hilltop 3 miles to the north-west of Belsay, in the hamlet of Harnham.
