Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

Do I need to get a local search LLC1 if I’m a cash buyer? Cash buyers do have a choice on what they ask us to order when they are purchasing a land parcel and do not necessarily have to conduct a search. Many such clients think they know what a Enquiries of the local authority search will reveal and may know about the Bishop Sutton or surrounding area however most conveyancing solicitors will still advise one. One of the main reasons is that the local search LLC1 is the only place to reveal debts to the local council and this is more commonly the case with probate properties.

Do you recommend that both of us get an Environmental search on the property that we are buying in Bishop Sutton? Yes we including this in our quote. We would always recommend an environmental check on the property you intend to purchase which is available from a number of search companies including Homecheck. The environmental check results provide details of present and past environmental risks together with a certificate from an environmental consultant confirming whether or not the ground, based upon the information revealed by the search, would be designated contaminated land by the local council.

Apart from showing that the land in Bishop Sutton is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other information does a a CON29DW show?

Top class solicitors, I was dealing with Mouzzam Yamin who handled everything very professionally especially when things were at difficult stages. They thoroughly make sure in protecting your interests and keep business professional. Hassle free process on recent property purchase with regular updates from Mouzzam Yamin, and all done at a reasonable fee.

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is commonly a mortgage to arrange and it should be noted that a conveyancing lawyer cannot rely on a “nod and a wink” by mortgage broker or anyone else. He should have sight of your final written offer of mortgage in order that he may (i) verify that you are getting the advance you need and be able to check that you can comply with any offer conditions imposed in the offer of loan.

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of linked parties in the property transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest practices 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 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 required to upkeep the fabric of the house. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Bishop Sutton 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 nominal 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 Bishop Sutton

Are you able to conduct a mortgage with Precise Mortgages in Bishop Sutton? Yes we are on the mortgage Panel for this lender.

We see that you do not have an office in Bishop Sutton? Is this a problem? No because like all modern lawyers we depend on technology to assist us in our practice to ensure that matters are dealt with speedily. Your proximity to our office is not important. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Bishop Sutton).

If you are a first time buyer what additional disbursements can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA KER are required to make certain actions to facilitate release of those monies including any bonus. If you complete the online quote you will see there is an yes no box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. 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) complete together. You will pay the normal rates of duty. If you buy a new home 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 residence within 36 months.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional costs can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the expenses up front in our estimate. 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 freeholder 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a flat what additional disbursements can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the costs up front in our quote. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing information packs often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation usually it is approximately £2500 but is can be higher in unusual 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 flats.

About Bishop Sutton.

Bishop Sutton (grid reference ST587597) is a small village within the Chew Valley in Somerset. It lies east of Chew Valley Lake and north east of the Mendip Hills, approximately ten miles south of Bristol on the A368, Weston-super-Mare to Bath road. Bishop Sutton and the neighbouring village of Stowey form the civil parish of Stowey Sutton.

The village has a large village hall, a public house (The Red Lion), an organic culinary school and bed and breakfast (Meadow View), a small supermarket, several shops including a Post Office within the village store, a tennis club and a caravan park. Next to the village hall are sports pitches where Bishop Sutton F.C. play. The lake is a popular place for children, adults and the elderly alike with beautiful views and entertainment such as fishing and sailing. There is a museum and tea shop on one side of the lake and a restaurant on the other.

The main industry in the village was a coal mine owned by J. Lovell & Sons from 1835 to 1929, which was part of the Somerset coalfield. There was also a large flour mill, part of which was converted into flats.
