Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Birchanger? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charge Register search and Enquiries of the local authority. The Local Land Charge Register 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 land 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 in need of an improvement or renovation grant. All Local Land Charge registrations are legally binding on successive owners i.e. a buyer.

When we order an Environmental enquiry on the property mentioned on the conveyancing quote for the property in Birchanger what will it reveal? The search provides replies of present and past pollution risks together with a report from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the ground is likely to be classified contaminated land by the council. 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 high radon zone.

Why is a drainage search indispensable if you want to extent or alter the property in Birchanger? One of the crucial details shows a plan of of any public sewer close to the land you are acquiring. This is important because if you want to build within three metres of a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may restrict what you want to build and/or make the extension more costly.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long does conveyancing take? For relatively easy sale or purchase, expect the conveyancing of your house to take approximately eight and twelve weeks.

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 mistakes a client makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to 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 customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land parcel is theirs,only to discover that the legal title to the land parcel doesn’t include this bit of garden. 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 property it stands on. As you have everything you are responsible for all outlays needed to repair the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Birchanger 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 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 upkeep of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

What is a first time buyer? The characterisation of a first time buyer may differ from your mortgage product when considering Stamp Duty . 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 England or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main house. If you select “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) go through together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new house 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 if you sell your previous main house within three years.

If we are buying a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements 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 £600. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by landlords and management companies will vary for providing information often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £200 but is can be more in extreme cases. Second, the lease may contains a mechanism for the assignor to pay a fee to the freeholder based on a % of the market value which is mainly 2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Birchanger.

Birchanger () is a village, civil parish and electoral ward in Essex, England. It is located 3 km (1.9 mi) northeast from Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire and is 25 km (16 mi) northwest from the county town of Chelmsford. The village is in the district of Uttlesford and in the parliamentary constituency of Saffron Walden. There is a Parish Council.

The local CoE church of St Mary the Virgin, dating from the 12th century, is a Grade II* listed building.

The village has a cricket, bowls and football club. It lies close to London Stansted Airport, which is 3 km (1.9 mi) to the east and is 2 km (1.2 mi) south of Stansted Mountfitchet. It is also the site of Birchanger Green services, a motorway service station on the M11 motorway.

In the 12th Century the village name in old English was recorded as “Bircehangra” which means “Wooded slope growing with Birch trees”. This name is still appropriate today as parts of Birchanger Wood still exist and still contains many Birch trees (which are protected).
