Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is a Local Authority Search and why is it needed in Bircotes? Whilst this is to a lawyers and banks and building societies an indispensable element of the home buying process to home buyers the need for this may be somewhat of a mystery. However the search reveals relevant|applicable|appropriate|useful information for your matter. In rare cases the information revealed can be used to renegotiate your offer or and may even make you pull out of from the matter.

I heard that the official local Enquiries in Bircotes will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? That is not correct. Whilst it is correct that councils are now in the process of locating contaminated land and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a unknown period of time to accomplish. Needless to say any properties comprised within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Con29 Enquiries are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a a CON29DW significant if you want to extent or alter the home in Bircotes? One of the most useful replies shows the location of any public sewer nearby the property you are buying. This is significant because if you want to build over a public drain you might need a ‘Build-over Agreement’ with the water authority. This may limit what you want to build and/or make the extension more expensive.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

This firm is probably the best I’ve ever dealt with regarding house moves. Mouzzam was very helpful in dealing with queries and very proactive with dealing with requests. It’s good to have a service that contacts you straight away rather than you having to constantly chase for information and answers. Our house move was a very difficult situation brought on by the buyers but he dealt with it in an exemplary and professional manner.

Remember if the process drags on, we will not hit you with additional charges.

Our price is fixed.

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 time if you are trading buying down and have a lot of items to clear. You can quicken the process if it is your first buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your choice depend on what  others in the chain will allow.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest solicitors 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 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 now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The original paper deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are destroyed this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the deeds for some period now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Bircotes you should check with your solicitor. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be destroyed. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Bircotes

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

Are you able to conduct Help to Buy ISAs in Bircotes? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA KER are required to make certain actions to make sure release of those monies including any bonus. If you complete the quote you will see there is an option for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on SDLT which will be nil up to £300,000. If you select “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 SDLT 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 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 leasehold 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 landlords and management companies 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing assignment packs often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation mainly it is around £200-300 but is can be higher in extreme 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 maintenance or very small buildings such as a single house converted into two maisonettes.

Bircotes was founded in the 1920s, with the discovery of coal during the First World War and the establishment of Harworth Colliery, to provide homes for miners. It is the home to one of the last deep-mine pits in the UK, although the pit is currently only being kept on a care and maintenance basis. Harworth was also the home of world champion cyclist Tom Simpson, who died during the 1967 Tour de France.
