Conveyancing In Beaworthy Q & A's

Can I change the purpose of use for a purchase as part of the conveyancing procedure?

Putting in a planning request to change the use of part or all of a property is a straightforward process and you can deal directly with the local authority, which authorises plans and requests. However, tying it in with a planned purchase of a property has its own problems, since you don’t yet formally own the property, and the length of time to get through the planning process (with no guarantee of success) will need to be factored into the purchase duration, which the seller may not agree to.

We would advise you to either buy the property and then put in the planning request after completion (or exchange at the very earliest), or buy a property that’s already fit for your purposes. Or you might be lucky to find a property that already has the relevant planning consents in place.

Should I get my short lease extended before selling?

Buyers are becoming increasingly wary of buying leaseholds with less than 90 years to run because, first, the cost of increasing a leasehold is becoming far more expensive, and, second, mortgage companies are becoming increasingly reticent to lend money to buy leases that have dropped below the 80-year mark (indeed, this will be one of the criteria that they set to ensure their investment is protected).

As a result, buyers will often insist that the leasehold be extended back up to the 99-year or 125-year typical thresholds before going ahead and buying it. So, as the current leaseholder, you will almost certainly be expected to do the legal work required to extend the lease to a level that buyers will be happy with.

What type of local checks regarding the potential risk of a flood around Devon will my Beaworthy lawyer be able to apply for?

An integral part of the legal due diligence process of purchasing a property involves a conveyancing lawyer applying for conveyancing searches (environmental) that offer details with regard to the local Beaworthy flood risk.

Does my assigned Beaworthy property lawyer tell me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band H property before completing on the purchase?

The property lawyer will speak to the Torridge local authority to reveal the applicable council tax charges which will subsequently be detailed in the conveyancer's title report. The latest tax charges for Beaworthy are detailed online at the Torridge council site. On (04 June 2012) rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £1,021.00
  • Band B - £1,192.00
  • Band C - £1,362.00
  • Band D - £1,532.00
  • Band E - £1,873.00
  • Band F - £2,213.00
  • Band G - £2,553.00
  • Band H - £3,064.00

What factors are key to arrange a fast conveyancing transaction?

Key to fast conveyancing is to use a communicative property lawyer. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?

Which local authority is responsible for Beaworthy?

Beaworthy is located in Torridge District Council, Manor Offices North Road, Holsworthy, Devon EX22 6DJ, Tel: 01409 253336

The agent has referred the law firm. Must I instruct them?

It is common for agents to endorse a law firm to handle your conveyancing. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, the agent may prefer to suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.
