Conveyancing In Bristol Q & A's

The vendor has fitted chimney stacks to the property, which may infringe on Arnos Vale conservation area guidelines.

Your property solicitor will determine if the property you are purchasing is within a conservation area and if so, whether any modifications have full consent from the Bristol authority. If they do not, your solicitor will advise you as to whether you should continue with the purchase.

Is it recommended to get Searches for Chancel Liability in Bristol?

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, Chancel Liability should always be considered by buyers of Bristol property, and an indemnity insurance policy set up where necessary to cover the costs. A Chancel Search will confirm whether liability is likely to exist. Specific Bristol churches include Christ Church, St Stephen, St Stephen and St Philip & St Jacob.

We are buying as property in Bristol. How do I confirm that the house is in a conservation area or not?

With 9,000 such areas listed across England, Bristol certainly includes a range of different conservation areas, which are protected for historic or architectural reasons, including Arnos Vale, Ashley Down and Stokes Croft. The Bristol local council will offer more information about local conservation areas, and your conveyancing solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities which come with purchasing in a specific area.

What specific things do I need to look out for if I’m buying a house on the coast?

With worsening weather and floods now becoming increasingly commonplace, with the media remarking on it in depth, buying a property that has a likelihood of flooding is a difficult decision to make. Not only is there the issue of cleaning up if it does flood, but insurance premiums will be much higher (and perhaps even prohibitive).

For homes in coastal areas, there is also the problem of coastal erosion, where some properties have been seen to literally fall into the sea.

However, the good news is that picking a home in a coastal region doesn’t automatically mean that it’s going to be subject to flooding or that it’s eventually going to slip into the sea. The searches ordered by your conveyancing solicitor will identify the level of risk associated with the property and, based on this, your solicitor may recommend that you take out specialist reports (e.g. from Landmark or other organisations) to get a more in-depth description of the risks and options. These are in addition to the standard set and will be charged to you as a disbursement at cost.

Your surveyor will also be able to identify evidence of previous floods and other problems during their inspection and provide advice in their report. If the problems are considered sufficiently severe, the surveyor may also note the specifics for further investigation by your conveyancing solicitor.

How can I find out if any of the conservation areas in Bristol are in a vulnerable state?

An up-to-date directory of the state of conservation areas is filed by English Heritage (formerly Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission for England), and the following areas and information are currently available at their website - Stokes Croft is noted as very bad with low vulnerability and rapidly deteriorating.
