What is included in a local authority search covering Bicester? There are two parts to a local authority search – LLC1 and CON29. The Local Land Charges 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 house, whether the property 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 Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer period if you are trading trading down and have a lot of items to get rid of. You can speed the process if it is your first purchase. You may be able to exchange and complete on the same day. However your option depend on what  others in the chain will consent to.

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 biggest errors a purchaser makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the property to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re purchasing on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land is theirs,only to find out that the legal title to the property doesn’t include this space. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

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 own everything you are responsible for all outlays necessary to maintain the fabric of the building. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bicester 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 freeholder each year. For leasehold there will be a lease agreement with the landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to contribute jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Bicester

Are you on the panel of Fleet Mortgages Limited? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We are aware that you do not have an office in Bicester? Is this a concern? No because like all modern law firms we depend on technology to assist us in our office to ensure that matters are dealt with promptly. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Bicester).

What is a first time buyer? The meaning of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty Land Tax. A first time buyer according to the the Government is an real 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 home. If you press “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) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new property before you sell (even if the gap is 24 hours 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 residence within 3 years.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the figures up front in our on line 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 landlords 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our on line quote. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is approximately £300 but is can be more in rare cases. Also in some cases you may not be charged – this will be restricted usually to either share of freehold where the residents run the management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into 2 leaseholds.

About Bicester.

Bicester ( BISS-tər) is a town and civil parish in the Cherwell district of northeastern Oxfordshire in England.

This historic market centre is one of the fastest growing towns in Oxfordshire. Development has been favoured by its proximity to junction 10 of the M40 motorway linking it to London, Birmingham and Banbury. It has good road links to Oxford, Kidlington, Brackley, Buckingham, Aylesbury and Witney, as well as railway stations on two axes; Bicester North and Bicester Village.

It has its own town council, approximately a one quarter of the population hence ward contribution to the District Council and further representation as to different local governmental matters on the County Council. In 2014 the Government in concert with the local planning authority planned for Bicester to become a garden city on the basis of the size of its buffers, distance from the Metropolitan Green Belt and in part to accommodate the demand of commuters to London and Oxford. Up to 13,000 new homes will be built. As the crow flies, Bicester is halfway between Birmingham and London, being 51 miles (82 km) from both cities.
