Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

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

Why do we need environmental checks in Blanchland? Statutory legislation have resulted in a clean-up system for polluted ground. The basic position is that the polluter should pay however where that party disappears (for example because the work was done some time ago or the company has gone into liquidation the liability for clear-up costs passes to the present owner (who could be you). Even if you are purchasing an maisonette in Blanchland you may find that you are liable for the cost of any remediation through the maintenance charge provisions of the lease.

Apart from showing that the home in Blanchland is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other data does a water authority search show? A a CON29 DW search confirms to a new owner that the land they are acquiring does not need a “build over consent” because the previous owner has constructed an addition to the house near a public drain. It also shows a raft of other replies such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

There is frequently mortgage finance to obtain and it should be noted that a conveyancing solicitor cannot rely on a oral confirmation by mortgage broker or anyone else. We will need to have sight of your official written offer of mortgage in order that they may (i) verify that you are getting the advance you need and verify that you can comply with any conditions of the mortgage offer imposed in the offer of loan.

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 law firms 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 land it stands on. As you own everything you are responsible for all expenses required to repair the fabric of the structure. Leasehold usually applies to flats or maisonettes although in some parts of the country including Blanchland 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 hundred 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 flat is situated and possibly also building insurance.

FAQs in Blanchland

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

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

If you are a first time buyer what additional expenses can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA your conveyancer are required to make certain procedures to facilitate release of those savings 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 which will be nil up to £300k. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” question 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 Stamp Duty Land Tax for each band for all property over forty thousand pounds. If you chose “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 maisonette what additional payments 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 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 £450. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a maisonette what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our estimate. The costs charged by landlords and managing agents will vary for providing responses often in a form called LPE1. The charge for this varies from organisation to organisation broadly it is approximately £200 but is can be more 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 block or very small buildings such as a single house converted into a couple flats.

About Blanchland.

Blanchland is a village in Northumberland, England, on the County Durham boundary. The population of the Civil Parish at the 2011 census was 135.

Set beside the river in a wooded section of the Derwent valley, Blanchland is an attractive small village in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Blanchland was formed out of the medieval Blanchland Abbey property by Nathaniel Crew, 3rd Baron Crew, the Bishop of Durham, 1674–1722. It is a conservation village, largely built of stone from the remains of the 12th-century Abbey. It features picturesque houses, set against a backdrop of deep woods and open moors. Located near the Derwent Reservoir, it provides facilities for sailing and fishing.

The Lord Crewe Arms Hotel has a vast fireplace where ‘General’ Tom Forster hid during the Jacobite rising of 1715. W. H. Auden stayed at the Lord Crewe Arms with fellow student Gabriel Carritt at Easter 1930, and later remarked that no place held sweeter memories. Writer Emily Elizabeth Shaw Beavan lived and wrote here when her husband worked at Derwent Mines. Blanchland may have been the model for the village in which was set the opening and closing scenes of Auden and Isherwood’s play The Dog Beneath the Skin (1935). Another celebrated poet Philip Larkin used to dine at the hotel when staying with Monica Jones in Haydon Bridge. In July 1969, Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears stayed at the Inn.

Scenes in the fictional town of Stoneybridge in the first three series of the CBBC programme Wolfblood were filmed in the village.

Its unspoilt qualities make it a frequent setting for period films, set in the 18th century, such as those based on the novels of Catherine Cookson.
