Conveyancing In Brecon Q & A's
I am buying a an extended investment flat in the boundary of Brecon conservation area. How do I uncover more data on the standard of repair of the Brecon conservation area?
English Heritage, a government body, have assembled a list of the state of repair of conservation areas. Conservation areas are specified by Powys who manage conservation area concerns from upkeep of paths to rundown streets.
What can a Brecon property solicitor do if the flat we are buying is inside the boundary of a registered conservation area and has ugly doors added?
The solicitor will make enquiries to check whether the property is inside a conservation area and whether any alterations have the requisite consent from the local council.
A right of way on the property I’m buying is redundant, but how do I get it removed from the deeds and registry?
A right of way through the grounds of a property is probably an inheritance before other building in the vicinity occurred that has since made the passage through redundant.
But, while having the right of way registered with the deeds means that feasibly someone could insist that they use it (as their public right), but, if they can’t access where the right of way originally led, it makes it a pointless activity.
It’s so unlikely that anyone will want to do this that you have to weigh up the cost of the legal process to get the right of way officially removed against not proceeding. However, if you are at all worried, talk to your solicitor so that it can be investigated further as part of the conveyancing, at which point they can guide you on the appropriate action and the associated costs (this will be in addition to the standard fees for the conveyancing and your solicitor will advise of this additional cost).
Homeward Legal's solicitors provide transparent quotes, detailing what is included in the fees and disbursements and will help with estimates for additional legal work. So, now is the best time to get your conveyancing under way on 0800 038 6699.
