What kind of investigation about the uncertain risk of floods in the Merton area will the Raynes Park property lawyer check out?


A critical part of the conveyancing protocol involves a solicitor making an application for property environmental searches that set out some details on the subject of Raynes Park flood risk. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more in-depth flood history/risk search, for instance the Landmark search, may be recommended by a qualified Raynes Park property solicitor if in the event that the initial conveyancing searches highlight a risk of flooding. At the time of this article being published (16-Jul-12) there were no warnings around the Beverley Brook at Raynes Park at the Beverley Brook Catchment in the London Boroughs of Merton, Sutton, Kingston upon Thames, Richmond upon Thames and Wandsworth


How early do you need to get a conveyancing solicitor to handle our purchase?

The straightforward answer is, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better, as conveyancing involves various tasks that can be performed very early in the process. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm to act on your Raynes Park sale or purchase for a sale can mean that prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.


What can impact land in Raynes Park, and are they thoroughly investigated?


A range of contaminants could lessen the value of property. Contaminants such as shallow mining or sand or gravel pits should be considered as part of the appropriate search.


Does my Raynes Park conveyancer apply for any property on the London forties detached building we are buying?


If getting a mortgage the lender expects at least a specified set of searches, including the following Local Authority, Drainage Search and Environment Search,, and possibly specific searches, like a British Waterways Search.


Do I need to get a chancel search? I am purchasing near parsonage grounds in Raynes Park.


As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Raynes Park which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for upkeep of nearby church land. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including maps of Raynes Park's parish boundaries. Raynes Park church properties include St Saviour.


Should I get a surveying expert to investigate our Raynes Park house purchase?


It is highly recommended that you order a home buyer survey when purchasing in Raynes Park. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of problems that affect a property, that a lender's valuation survey, for example, will not cover, including poor ventilation.


Does manage auction conveyancing in Raynes Park?


Yes - Our company is very capable working with property auction procedures. Regularly unusual properties such as thatched cottages are purchased at auction and these demand supplementary due diligence. We therefore encourage that purchasers formally instruct a property lawyer before the auction day to allow enough time for a thorough investigation.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction day a lawyer must be fully prepared to conclude the conveyancing inside 28 days, a requirement of terms of sale.
