Is lithium (Li) found in Syston soil?


Most soils in Syston have some degree of contamination, from industrial or agricultural. Other sources of contaminated land include asbestos and groundwater contamination.


I am purchasing a property in the parish of Nailstone. Is a chancel search appropriate?


Your solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.


How much time should the conveyancing process generally require? The house being transacted is also in the area.


For most Syston property, the number of weeks needed to sell or purchase a property does vary. This is affected by potentially many legal considerations, for example, if you plan to take out a mortgage. Our solicitors ensure the matter is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.


What actions can I take to avoid paying for SDLT?


Stamp duty reduction scheme is not recommended. These schemes are costly and unreliable.


Are the many areas of conservation in Syston likely to affect us?


With nine thousand areas of conservation throughout the country, the neighbourhoods located near Syston include several areas of 'special architectural and historic interest' defined as protected. Living in a conservation area can mean more aesthetically pleasant surroundings, but the restrictions adds to upkeep costs. A conveyancing solicitor will discuss what specific restrictions are in place.


Do we need a chancel search? I am buying near church grounds in Syston.


In Syston, some owners can be required to pay for maintenance of older church buildings. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Church lands in this area include St Anne, St Mary and St Peter & St Paul.


As a consequence of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands, I am thinking that conveyancing searches aren't sufficient?


A thorough Syston property solicitor will consider apply for environmental searches (Landmark database search) if the initial search establishes a significant risk Syston flooding risk.
