Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is not included in a local authority search? There are a number of additional queries that are not covered by the standard local authority search. These include: environmental checks in Birthorpe? (to determine a risk of flooding for example, as well as the proximity of any waste sites or potentially contaminated sites which may need a remediation); water authority searches (which show any mains sewers within the boundaries of the property which could impact upon future building or development). In certain areas additional searches such as mining searches may be advised.

I am advised that the local Search in Birthorpe will show if the land is contaminated. Is that right? No. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of locating polluted ground and recording these sites on registers – this is a process which will take a many years to finish. Needless to say any property entered within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any local Search are likely to be incomplete.

Why is a drainage search decisive if you want to extent or alter the property in Birthorpe? One of the important results shows a map of any public sewer close to the property you are purchasing. This is significant because if you want to build near 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 build cost more.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is often a mortgage to obtain and it should be noted that a conveyancer cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. We will need to have sight of your official written mortgage offer in order that he may (i) verify that you are getting the loan you need and be able to check that you can comply with any conditions of the mortgage offer imposed in the mortgage terms.

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 looking at a quote what disbursements apply to your sale and purchase and ask about 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 £195 that Firm B is charging as an ‘expedition fee’? In practice it may not really be a disbursement at all, but might be a way of Firm B making their overall quote sound cheaper by adding on costs disguised as ‘disbursements’. Make sure that any quotes you download 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 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 costs necessary to repair the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Birthorpe 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 landlord setting out the rights and obligations including the requirement to pay jointly to the care of the building in which the leasehold property is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Birthorpe

Are you able to oversee a mortgage with Bank of Ireland in Birthorpe? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

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

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300k or less for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between £300k and half a million pounds will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300k – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . If the price is over £500,000 there is no relief for the first time buyer and the normal rates apply. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty Land Tax if I am buying a second home in Birthorpe? 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 forty thousand pounds. If you select “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” option on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a flat what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the costs up front in our estimate. 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

We have obtained Letters of Administration for my parents estate. Do you deal with sales by executors? Yes. As executors of the Estate you can sell and our legal costs remain the same as quoted for this type of Seller.

About Birthorpe.

Birthorpe is a small hamlet in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated less than 1 mile (2 km) west from Billingborough and the B1177 Pointon Road, and 2 miles (3 km) east from Folkingham.

Birthorpe is regarded as a shrunken medieval village. The Manor House and farm house are listed buildings.

There was a substantial manor here well before 1300: the family who owned it took their name from the village. The most notable family member was Roger de Birthorpe (died c.1345), who had a distinguished career as a judge in Ireland, becoming Chief Baron of the Irish Exchequer in 1327. Roger was a somewhat controversial figure, who fled to Ireland after being outlawed for his part in a private war with Sempringham Priory, but eventually received a royal pardon. Birthorpe later passed to the Deyncourt family.
