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

Why do we need environmental enquiries in Bishop Burton? Statutory laws have resulted in a remediation scheme for polluted land. The basic position is that the polluter should remediate however where that party cannot be found (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 existing owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an leasehold in Bishop Burton you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the service charge provisions of the lease.

Why is a a CON29DW significant if you want to extent or alter the land in Bishop Burton? One of the critical details shows a map of any public sewer nearby the land you are purchasing.

General Conveyancing Tips

Remember there are frequently a few related purchases involved in the “chain” and the interdependence of these transactions means that everyone moves at the pace of the slowest purchase.

Always check what you are acquiring? We will always send 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 buyer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to go to the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often purchasers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land parcel is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the property 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 land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all outlays necessary to sustain the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bishop Burton 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 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 pay jointly to the care of the building in which the flat is located and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Bishop Burton

Are you able to deal with a mortgage with Halifax in Bishop Burton? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

Are you able to handle Lifetime ISAs? Yes we deal with Lifetime ISAs in Bishop Burton.

What SDLT will I pay if I am a first time buyer? First time buyers paying £300,000 or lower for a residential property will pay no SDLT. If you are paying between three hundred thousand pounds and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of three hundred thousand pounds – a reduction of £5,000 compared to standard rates of Stamp Duty . 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 chose “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 1 day 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 provided you sell your previous main home within 3 years.

If we are buying a flat what additional expenses 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 freeholder 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 £500. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

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

About Bishop Burton.

Bishop Burton is a village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It lies on the A1079 road approximately 3 miles (5 km) to the west of the market town of Beverley.

According to the 2011 UK census, Bishop Burton parish had a population of 696, an increase on the 2001 UK census figure of 628.

There has been human activity in Bishop Burton for at least 10,000 years, with traces left from the Mesolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age and Romano-British eras.

The village (whose name may derive from Burtone, meaning fortified farmstead) is mentioned in the Domesday Book as belonging to the Archbishop of York and the site of Archbishop’s Manor House continued to be the site of Manor Houses up to the demolition of High Hall in 1952.

The parish church of All Saints is a Grade II* listed building and its earliest parts date from the late 12th century. The only other surviving religious building is the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, dating from 1840, which is now a house.

There was a school in the village from 1743 to 1986.

In a field to the east of the village is one of the medieval stone boundary markers for the sanctuary of Saint John of Beverley that is now a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

The look and feel of the village – black and white colour scheme, rustic porches and clay pantiles – are the result of improvements to estate housing carried out by ERB Hall-Watt and Richard Hall-Watt (see below) in the late 19th and early 20th century. Subsequent development has often followed this architectural style to retain the unified feel of the village. It is readily apparent when it has not.

Bishop Burton is home to Bishop Burton College, a further education and higher education college specialising in agriculture and equine studies.

Bishop Burton is also the home to Bishop Burton United Football Club, formed in 2008 as Wilberforce & Larkin Football Club before moving to the village at the start of the 2009–10 season and changing the name to Bishop Burton United so as to emphasise their link with the village and their new home. Bishop Burton United play in the East Riding County Football League Division 3 with matches taking place on Saturdays with a 2 pm kick off. United’s home ground is the 4G artificial surface at Bishop Burton College. United’s local rivals are nearby sides Molescroft Rangers and Market Weighton United. United have a reputation as a progressive and ambitious football club with the lofty aim of gaining semi-professional status within the next 7 years. The club is also known for its broad multicultural mix with Polish, Latvian, French, Indonesian and Nigerian players in their squad.

The Gee family were associated with Arthur Pearson-Gee, the brother of Karl Pearson. The Gees came from Rothley in Leicestershire.

Monument to Rachel and Elizabeth Gee

This alabaster monument was found in an old vault under the floor of the chancel in 1865 and restored to its position in the church. It is to Rachel, wife of William Gee Esq. of the Bishop Burton Estate.

Rachel was the daughter of Thomas Parker of Ratton, and she died in 1649 aged 33. William Gee Esq. (d 1683) was the grandson of Sir William Gee of Bishop Burton (d.1611), secretary to James I (r.1603–25). Sir William, then of Beverley, bought the estate after it was surrendered to the crown in 1543, being part of the Archbishop of York’s estate.

The memorial now consists of the shrouded figure of Rachel, full length with her face, one arm and hand exposed, and the small figure of a child which kneels at her head. These two items are thought to have been part of a larger monument, which has probably been destroyed.
