Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? Note that local searches are often relevant to only the property you are purchasing and might not cover developments next door or located a short distance away. (Tip: in this instance you may wish to make additional enquiries at your council covering Billinghay. Usually, you can search most planning applications on the council’s website by postcode or by map search).

Do we need environmental checks in Billinghay? Statutory rules have resulted in a clean-up scheme for contaminated properties. The basic position is that the polluter should clean up however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for clean-up costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Billinghay you may find that you are liable for the cost of any clean-up through the service charge provisions of the lease.

What is a drainage search ? A Drainage & Water Enquiry confirms to a prospective owner that the home they are buying is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage.

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.

Always check what you are buying? 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 errors a customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a good idea 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 clients mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the property is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the home 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 costs needed to upkeep the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Billinghay 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 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 upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Billinghay

Are you on the panel of West Bromwich Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

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

What is a first time buyer? The classification of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering SDLT. A first time buyer according to the the Stamp Office 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 house. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” option 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 maisonette what additional fees can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our on line 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 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold in a retirement development what additional payments can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company broadly it is around £200 but is can be more in rare cases. Second, the lease could contains a provision for the assignor to pay a fee to the management company based on a percentage of the market value which is sometimes around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Billinghay.

Billinghay is a village and civil parish in the North Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. The village is situated approximately 7 miles (11 km) north-east from Sleaford, and lies on the B1189 Walcott road near its junction with the A153. Just south of the village towards Sleaford is North Kyme. According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 1,808, increasinging to 2,190 at the 2011 census.

The settlement is mentioned in the Domesday Book. The name originates from a Saxon name for a fishery. The topography in ancient times would have been that of a small settlement on a gravel mound surrounded by marsh which was flooded in winter. After the draining of the fens in the late 18th century the area became rich agricultural land as it is today. The parish church is of historic interest. It dates from the 13th century.[citation needed]

Billinghay Grade I listed Anglican parish church is dedicated to St Michael and All Angels. The parish is part of the Car Dyke group of parishes – including Tattershall Bridge.

After the phased closure of Lafford High School due to falling pupil numbers, Billinghay Primary School remains the only school in the village.

In 1986 village was twinned with Ballon, in the Sarthe department of France.
