Q.

Addiscombe points of interest

A.

Shirley London Windmill and Croydon Airport Vistor Centre Aviation Museum are near to Addiscombe.

The closest hospital is Shirley Oaks Croydon.

Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor for purchasing a leasehold flat?

A.

Various firms promote cheap conveyancing, but additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Excited home owners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Applicable disbursements should be included on any quote for conveyancing in Addiscombe

Q.

What are Addiscombe's 'conveyancing searches'?

A.

These searches are queries raised by the purchaser's solicitor through particular organisations, such as a commons registration search. They do not include information relating to a property's structure.

Q.

Will I need a house survey?

A.

It is strongly recommended that the majority of buyers book a RICS survey. A wide range of concerns have a negative impact on a property. These include ground movement, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Is there an authority that has any thorough online published record on the standard of Addiscombe conservation areas?

A.

English Heritage have put together records of the state of conservation areas in Croydon and throughout England. Local Addiscombe conservation area matters, such as what can be demolished, the colours of paint used or ugly highway signs are maintain by the local authority (Croydon).

Q.

How can we find out if a house is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas protect areas of historical merit. These restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes, but the benefits include security that the surroundings are unlikely to change. Your property solicitor will be able to provide more details.

Q.

Does the Addiscombe conveyancing solicitor do any property on the London Sixties end-of-terrace flat I am intending to purchase?

A.

If buying and taking out a mortgage lender expects a solicitor to get at least specific searches, including - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental, and occasionally specific searches such as Chancel Search.

Q.

Should we use a solicitor suggested by our estate agent?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common path for purchasers to get a solicitor. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

If I am buying in Addiscombe on the same street as parish land, do you need a chancel search?

A.

The outcome of a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must pay for church repairs. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including parish records. Churches in Addiscombe include St Mary Magdalene and St Mildred.
