What does the Banwell conveyancing solicitor advise if the home is located in a North Somerset planning authority conservation area that has ugly roof aerials added?


Local authority LLC1 searches carried out by your Banwell property lawyer during the legal process should check if the property is inside a designated conservation area and any evidence of Coal Authority consent for additions to the property will be asked for.

Should no suitable consents be supplied your conveyancing solicitor will give you professional advice on all options e.g. seeking cover from an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective consent.


The house being purchased is on a brownfield site. Can the topsoil still be contaminated?


Though the dangers are usually minor, if significant harm could be caused to people or protected species by the contamination, it is likely to be labelled contaminated land. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contamination.


What do fixtures and fittings refer to?


Purchasers are often frustrated by confusion over which fixtures and fittings will be included in a sale. The need to clarify this is regularly overlooked, making agreement of a comprehensive list of included items so essential.


Where do I determine whether the Banwell conservation area I am buying in is neglected?


Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain records of the condition of conservation areas. Local Banwell conservation areas are set up by the local authority (North Somerset) who administer everything from including things like ugly parking meters, removal of front gardens for parking and public spaces.
