Should you get a chancel search when we are buying in Basingstoke near priory land?

A.

There are over 15,000 Church of England and Church of Wales parishes across England and Wales. Property owners within some of these may be required to pay for the repair of a local church. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Basingstoke must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Basingstoke ecclesiastical properties include All Saints' Church, St Gabriel's, St Michael and St Peter (Worship Centre).

Q.

The owner appears to have fitted roof antenna on the property in Basingstoke which I think may violate nearby conservation area guidelines

The lawyer will make enquiries to ascertain if your proposed purchase is within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have the appropriate permissions.

Q.

In regards to the fact that 4 of the top 5 wettest years recorded were in last 12 years, I am concerned that conveyancing searches may not be sufficient?

A.

Flood searches conducted by your property lawyer in Basingstoke should also include the far more thorough search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

A.

Q.

We are buying on a new-build former industrial site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like iron (Fe)?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Basingstoke, but an plot will be marked as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life is unacceptable. Metal contamination of soil in Basingstoke is more likely to occur near waste treatment sites. Data on other contaminants, like hazardous gases, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

I have read about the conveyancing process when buying a flat. Would it be reasonable to enact the legals ourselves?

A.

There is no reason why you cant engage in the bulk of the conveyancing without the help of a trained Basingstoke property solicitor. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor handles a long list of skilled tasks including chasing any outstanding docs and checking the lease most of which really need a skilled professional.

Essentially have a go conveyancers do not have the applicable professional indemnity insurance which firms and their solicitors are required to be covered by.
