Handy local Burford transport and services information

Shipton train station is about 4 miles from Burford. The closest airport to Burford is Kidlington, Oxford Airport (14 miles). Kidlington Airport is 15 miles and Gloucester Airport is 23 miles away.

Witney is the most convenient hospital.

Q.

I need to find a cheap Burford solicitor to sell a residence. What do we need to consider?

A.

Many property lawyers promote so-called cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees are often hiding in the small print. A conveyancing quote should list any disbursements.

Q.

What does the Burford property solicitor advise if the building I hope to purchase is within a West Oxfordshire council conservation area which has inappropriate new windows added?

A.

West Oxfordshire planning authority LLC1 searches carried out by a solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will confirm whether the property is in a conservation area and evidence of planning authority consent for alterations will be supplied.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like copper (Cu)?

A.

There are wide-ranging regulations imposed to limit topsoil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as asbestos, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

If I plan to buy in the parish of Rotherfield Greys, will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer might recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a building where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What factors will contaminate land in Burford. Are these comprehensively investigated?

A.

Residential property may have been contaminated by a broad range of natural causes and human activities. Contaminants like local waste transfer sites and overhead transmission lines should be reported on during conveyancing searches.

Q.

Are the any areas of conservation in Burford likely to affect us?

A.

Locales deemed to be of historic or architectural significance, such as 19th century suburbs, will be registered as conservation areas. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

In respect of the serious flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am wondering whether conveyancing and environmental searches might not be detailed enough?

A.

A diligent solicitor in Burford should also get flood searches if the standard search spots a Burford flood risk.

Sometimes property buyers to also get in touch with a future neighbour to gain added assurance if you are still worried.

Q.

How much would searches on average cost?

A.

Searches range in cost, and will be dependent on your lender's requirements. Searches are charged at cost.
