How will the Aberporth lawyer advise me on the potential risk of a flood in Aberporth for a Victorian house we intend to purchase?
A conveyancing lawyer conducts official environmental searches that will include Aberporth flood risk area data information. Additionally a conveyancing solicitor in Aberporth could possibly advocate a significantly more specialist search.
Will we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Llanbadarn Trefeglwys, near Aberporth?
The Aberporth conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. In Aberporth's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on the current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Llanbadarn Trefeglwys, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
Which factors can contaminate land in Aberporth, and will they be properly investigated?
Property is contaminated by a broad range of factors caused by man and by nature. Contaminants like environmental radon sources or proximity to waste sites should be considered as part of the appropriate search.
What does the cost of our conveyancing searches be?
With a Homeward Legal solicitor, you are charged at most £249 for searches. They are disbursements.
The survey revealed that no planning consent was obtained for an extension: What are the issues I’ll face?
The chartered surveyor inspecting the property will check any extensions or works that have occurred and highlight any concerns for the attention of your conveyancing solicitor, who will make enquiries with the local authority to establish whether the consents and building regulations are in place.
If the building regulations agreement is not in place, the vendor is not legally allowed to sell the property until they are, since the title deeds cannot be transferred to your ownership. If building requiring planning consent is present at the property but without proof of consent approval, the local authority might be willing to accept a retrospective approval, although this could take a long time, and, even then, they may instruct you, as the new owner, to return the building to its former state, which could be very costly.
Your solicitor will be able to advise you on the most appropriate course of action to take, including whether the retrospective planning or the reversal of building works can be renegotiated from the agreed sale price.
Which government authority keeps records for policing the state of repair of the conservation areas in Aberporth?
Local Aberporth conservation areas are nominated by the local Ceredigion planning authority, who maintain conservation area concerns from including things like ugly parking meters, extensions and paths.
