Q.

We are trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote. Can you assist?

A.

How is Battersea contaminated land investigated?

Many of contaminants may spoil property, like waste treatment sites in the area. An environmental search will give more detail.

Q.

Do you recommend that I get a chancel search? I am buying close to a 1400s vicarage in Battersea.

A.

Some owners in Battersea can be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs to older church buildings. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Battersea ecclesiastical properties where chancel liability may apply include Fields, All Saints, Rise, St Mark, Lavender Hill, The Ascension and Fields, All Saints.

Q.

I am purchasing with OneSavings, what do we need to check?

Q.

What do conveyancing searches bear upon?

A.

Searches are queries raised by your property solicitor through several agencies, such as a mining search. Buyers should be aware that, conveyancing searches refer to facets affecting the legal title.

Myself and my partner are planning to buy in Battersea. Can we check that the property is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas categorise neighbourhoods designated as being of historic or architectural significance. The benefits of such restrictions include more aesthetically pleasant surroundings, but they create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities.

Q.

How can I discover additional data the status of the conservation areas in Battersea?

A.

Local Battersea conservation area matters, for example trees, dormer windows or traffic signs etc. are handled by the local Wandsworth planning authority. English Heritage, a government body, maintain a list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.
