Q.

How do I get affordable conveyancing?

Various firms advertise cheap conveyancing. Often extra charges can pad the solicitor's invoice.

Q.

What will conveyancing searches be?

Q.

I am intending to buy a home in Berkswich with Walton. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor responsible for your move might recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the home being bought is found. Chancel repair

has the potential to be charged on owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.

Q.

What authority is responsible for overseeing the status of repair of the conservation areas in Barlaston and Barlaston?

A.

English Heritage have produced a list of the state of repair of conservation areas. Conservation areas in Barlaston are specified by the local authority (Stafford) who oversee conservation area concerns from including things like neon signs, side extensions and public spaces.

Q.

Could selenium (Se) contaminate land in Barlaston?

A.

Most soils in Barlaston have some degree of contamination, from industry and natural causes. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Barlaston, including local authorities.

Q.

Having heard about the extensive flooding in 2012 in the Midlands, I am questioning if flood searches might not be exacting enough?

A.

Your property lawyer in Barlaston will advise you to carry out conveyancing and environmental searches (Landmark database search) if the environmental search establishes a risk of flooding in Barlaston.

You could also try to speak to a neighbour of the property to get further comfort.

Q.

Would you advise that I get a chancel search? We are buying in Barlaston.

A.

There are fifteen thousand parishes in the UK. Owners of property within some of these may be required to pay for the repair of a local church. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Barlaston Church of England properties include St John the Baptist.
