Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a Local Authority search if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they order when they are purchasing a house and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such customers think they know what a Enquiries of the local authority search will reveal and may know about the Bigbury on Sea or surrounding vicinity however most solicitors will still advise one. One of the main reasons is that the local search LLC1 is the only place to reveal indebtedness to the local council and this is more commonly the case with properties where the owner has gone into a home.

Why do we need environmental searches in Bigbury on Sea? Statutory laws have resulted in a remediation system for polluted areas. The basic position is that the polluter should clean up however where that party cannot be found (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into bankruptcy the liability for clear-up costs passes to the existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an lease in Bigbury on Sea you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clear-up through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the site in Bigbury on Sea is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other information does a a CON29DW contain? A a CON29 DW search illustrates to a future interested party that the land parcel they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an alteration within three metres of a public drain.

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 hidden costs, disbursements and VAT”. Disbursements are sums paid by lawyers to third parties such as search fees and Land Registry fees and stamp duty. Double check when obtaining a quote what disbursements apply to your sale and check any disbursements that haven’t been mentioned by other firms. For example, Firm B might quote legal fees at £75 cheaper than Firm A, but what about that unusual ‘disbursement’ of £150 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In reality it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound better by adding on their legal fees disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any estimates you get contain all costs, disbursements and VAT. Beware of quotes that look a lot cheaper than others – as the saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

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 unregistered title deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the date in Bigbury on Sea you should check with your lawyer. 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 Bigbury on Sea

Are you able to oversee a mortgage with M&S Bank in Bigbury on Sea? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We see that you do not have an office in Bigbury on Sea? Is this a issue? No because like all modern firms of lawyers we rely on technology to assist us in our firm 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 Bigbury on Sea).

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty . If you are paying between £300k and five hundred thousand pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000 – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of SDLT. If the price is over five hundred thousand pounds there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty if I am buying a second home in Bigbury on Sea? 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 Land Tax for each band for all property over £40,000. If you chose “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents 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.

We are administrators of my parents estate. Do you deal with sales by administrators? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our fees remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.

About Bigbury on Sea.

Bigbury-on-Sea is a village in the South Hams district on the south coast of Devon, England. It is part of the civil parish of Bigbury which is centred on a small village of that name about a mile inland. Bigbury-on-Sea village is on the coast above the largest sandy beach in South Devon facing south to Bigbury Bay. The tidal island of Burgh Island lies about 270 yards (250 metres) offshore.

At the start of the 20th century Bigbury-on-Sea consisted of a few fishermen’s cottages with fish cellars. The village grew with the growth in holidaymaking and now has a beach cafe, and by the mainland side of causeway is the Burgh Island Causeway resort built in 1998 replacing the burnt out fishermen’s cottages after a controversial planning application. The resort is made up of privately owned and holiday let flats and a private leisure club with indoor pool and gym. The Devon Coastal Path runs behind the resort.

The large sandy beach is very popular for wave and wind based water sports, but it lost its Blue Flag beach status in 2012 due to water quality issues.

There are two large car parks with easy access to the beaches and the walk across the sand bar to Burgh Island with its Art Deco Hotel and Pilchard Inn. When the tide covers the sand bar access is by the sea tractor.

As of March 2020, 63% of properties in the village were holiday-lets or second homes.
