Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Bitchfield? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and CON29. The second part of the search – CON29 – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is maintained at public expense, proposals for new road schemes, railway schemes or planning approvals relating to the property. The search can also include outstanding statutory notices, breaches of planning or building regulations or the existence of a compulsory purchase order. Environmental factors, such as whether the house stands on contaminated land or in a Radon gas affected area are also covered but see out comments on Environmental Searches also.

I believe that the Land Charges Search in Bitchfield 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 parcels 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 sites listed within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any official local Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the site in Bitchfield is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other replies does a Drainage & Water Enquiry include? A a CON29 DW search shows to a prospective buyer that the land parcel they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the seller has constructed an extension over a public drain. It also shows a raft of other replies such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviews of our Service

Mouzzam was extremely helpful with our sale and purchase. Always quick to answer my frequent emails and kept us up to date with the whole process of buying and selling our home. I couldn’t fault the service that we recieved and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for conveyancing. We have now used KER on three separate occasions for a property purchase, sale and lease extension. On all occasions Mouzzam has provided a thorough, professional and prompt service. We would recommend KER. Very professional, prompt and efficient service.

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

Our price is fixed.

General Conveyancing Tips

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

The Legal Ombudsman advises “Be wary of referrals and recommendations” There are lots of vested interests in the conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage lenders might all suggest firms of lawyers 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 payment 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 house or flat. Historically these were traditionally 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 stored by a 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 in Bitchfield you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be lost. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Bitchfield

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 handle Help to Buy ISAs in Bitchfield? Yes we are on the panel so we can deal with Help to Buy ISAs.

If you are a first time buyer what additional fees can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA KER are required to make certain procedures to make sure 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” 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 residence 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 if you sell your previous main property within three years.

If we are buying a leasehold what additional disbursements 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 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 £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a house in a retirement development what additional costs can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. There are going to be two potential costs. First, the costs charged by freeholder and managing agents will vary for providing replies often in a questionnaire called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company mainly it is around £200-300 but is can be more in unusual cases. Second, the lease may contains a agreement for the assigning to pay a fee to the management company based on a % of the sale price which is often around 1-2% although other formula may be used. The lease will need to be checked carefully.

About Bitchfield.

Bitchfield is a small village in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. It consists of two groups of buildings connected by Dark Lane, known as Bitchfield and Lower Bitchfield, collectively called Bitchfield. The village is situated approximately 6 miles (10 km) south-east from Grantham, and on the B1176 road, running east and parallel to the A1.

The village is part of the civil parish of Bitchfield and Bassingthorpe . It had been a civil parish in its own right until 1931.

Bitchfield is mentioned in the Domesday Book as “Billesfelt”. Both Bitchfield and Lower Bitchfield are sometimes described as “shrunken” rather than deserted medieval villages. There are signs that both were more extensive at one time. In Bitchfield there is an earthwork known as Camp Field.

The ecclesiastical parish covers just Bitchfield. It is part of the North Beltisloe Group of parishes in the Deanery of Beltisloe, in the Diocese of Lincoln. The parish church, in Lower Bitchfield, is dedicated to St Mary Magdalene. From 2006 to 2011 the incumbent was Rev Richard Ireson. The church is substantially unaltered, with features of both Norman and Perpendicular architecture.
