Buying a house in Herefordshire

Herefordshire is a largely-rural region in the English West Midlands, sitting along the border with Wales. It’s home to some 200,000 inhabitants, spread across charming villages, popular towns like Leominster and Ledbury, as well as county town Hereford, which is the region’s only city. This means there’s a diverse and active property market in Herefordshire, one that we’ve been tailoring our knowledge of here at My Home Move Conveyancing, allowing us to bring our clients in the area a specialist, fixed fee conveyancing service.

The local area

Bordering Wales’ Brecon Beacons National Park and the Malvern Hills, it’s no surprise that Herefordshire has some of the UK’s most treasured landscapes. This rural region is home to a scattering of charming villages, while the cathedral city of Hereford sits at its centre, providing those all-important amenities in a setting that’s no less beautiful. 

Of course, all of that does come at something of a cost. While the region is not as well served by transport compared with many of neighbours, residents will still find access to cities like Birmingham and Bristol is quick and efficient. The M5 motorway cuts east of Herefordshire, joined by a motorway spur (The M50) which feeds into the region. Hereford has a major railway station, as do Ledbury and Leominster, with services running directly to places such as Birmingham, Shrewsbury and Oxford. Depending on which side of the region you live in, the closest major airport is either Cardiff Airport or Birmingham Airport, with the latter serving more long-haul destinations than the former. 

Parents will be pleased to hear that education provision in the country is excellent. You’ll find as many as 20 OFSTED ‘outstanding’ schools throughout Herefordshire, including the likes of Kingsland CofE and St Weonard’s at primary level. For older children there’s Fairfield High School and Barrs Court School, while the University of Worcester is the nearest major higher education facility to Herefordshire.

All properties in Herefordshire will fall into one of the following council tax bands. As the county is split between district councils and parishes, the amount you need to pay will vary slightly, depending on where exactly you live. Figures for the Hereford city zone are shown below:

What's involved

Once you have your offer accepted, it’s time to get the ball rolling on legally transferring the ownership to you. Here’s how we do things at My Home Move Conveyancing.

First, your estate agents will send us a copy of the Memorandum of sale, which provides the details of the property, the amount offered and the name of the sellers and buyers and their conveyancers. You will be asked to complete your details and provide to us your instructions along with primary ID such as a passport or driving licence and proof of residence in the form of a bank statement/utility bill.

If you are selling a house, you will need a Conveyancer to act for you – that’s where we come in!

You will be asked by us to complete your details and provide your instructions along with primary ID such as a passport or driving licence and proof of residence in the form of a bank statement/utility bill. You will also be asked to fill in a Property Information form including some specific details about the property, its boundaries, any alterations to the property etc. If you have any additional paperwork such as planning permissions or notices, then these will be required by us to send with the contract papers. We will also ask you to complete a Fixtures, Fittings and Contents form to say what you will be taking and leaving behind. If the property is leasehold, you will be asked for information about who you pay ground rent and services charges to…

After we have received your instructions to act we will check the legal issues and title to your property to ensure it offers a satisfactory security for your new lender, as this is the essence of a mortgage.

We will also check the amounts outstanding on any current mortgage registered on the property as these will have to be repaid at completion. The amounts will be confirmed with you.

Usually, we will not carry out Local, Drainage or Mining (if appropriate) searches as we will put in place an insurance which will protect your lender. This is less expensive for you and quicker. Some lenders still require that searches are made and will not rely on insurance. If this is the case the searches will have to be made and the cost will show on the Financial Statement sent to you.

At about the same time that you receive your Mortgage Offer we receive a copy together with the lender’s instructions to act for them. We will consider the Offer to ensure that we do those things required of us as the solicitors and to check what other conditions have to be satisfied.

We will then send you the Mortgage Deed to sign and any other documentation that may be required by your lender. We shall need to have this back from you as soon as possible and certainly by the day before we complete. Otherwise there will be a delay.

You need to check that the Mortgage Offer is acceptable to you. For example, is the mortgage amount and mortgage product correct? Is it the correct method of repayment? Are there any early repayment fees?

We target a completion date for 7 days after we receive our copy of the Mortgage Offer but our being able to complete depends on the terms of the Offer and any peculiarities of your transaction.

If the new mortgage amount is less than the amount we have to pay to your existing lender, we will ask for the difference from you, before the completion date.

Following completion we deal with the registration formalities to ensure the mortgage security is perfected for your lender and any deeds will then be sent to your lender for safe-keeping.

Note – If your property is leasehold, we also:

Request your landlord to confirm that all ground rent, service charges and insurance premiums (if applicable) have been paid to date and that there is no known breach of the lease.

Have to approve the wording of the lease.

Have to serve on the landlord a notice of discharge of your existing mortgage and a notice that a new mortgage has been given to your new lender.
