Handy nearby transport and services information

Burton upon Trent's closest airport is East Midlands Airport (13 miles). Tollerton Airport is 25 miles away and Burton-on-Trent train station is almost 1 mile from Burton upon Trent.

Queens, Burton Upon Trent is a relatively close hospital to Burton upon Trent.

Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £541,000 house? I am looking for fixed rate Burton upon Trent conveyancing.

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs are often hiding in small print. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry.

Q.

In what ways does a Burton upon Trent lawyer report on the risk and history of flooding at Burton upon Trent?

A.

An essential part of the legal due diligence process of buying a property involves a conveyancer applying for property environmental searches that set out specific information about the Burton upon Trent flood risk area.

Q.

We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, how can we arrange fast legal work?

A.

As is widely reported, finding a proactive lawyer is key faster conveyancing. There are numerous things you as the buyer could do to speed up the legal work. These include:

  • requesting regular updates from your lawyer and keep the pressure on
  • answering any queries raised by the lawyer as soon as possible
  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can
  • Q.

    As a consequence of the serious flooding in 2012 in the Midlands we are wondering whether environmental searches won't be exacting enough?

    A.

    Flood risk searches handled by your property solicitor in Burton upon Trent should also include the far more rigorous Landmark flood search if it is felt necessary.

    It is not uncommon for buyers to converse with a local resident for that additional local history.

    Q.

    Myself and my partner are interested in purchasing a property in Burton upon Trent. Can I verify if the property is in a conservation area?

    A.

    With around 9,000 conservation areas throughout England, the neighbourhoods near or within Burton upon Trent will include a number of areas of special architectural or historic interest designated as protected. George Street Burton and Clarence Street / Anglesey Road are among the conservation areas in Burton upon Trent. The local authority will advise further about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

    Q.

    The vendor looks to have installed inappropriate cladding on the house which I think might conflict with George Street Burton conservation area criteria.

    A.

    The property solicitor will always establish whether your new home is within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have appropriate permissions from the local planning authority.

    Q.

    How much will our searches be?

    A.

    Burton upon Trent conveyancing searches ranges in cost, depending on the particular searches ordered. These searches are will be charged at cost.

    Q.

    Is it advisable that we get searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing in Burton upon Trent.

    A.

    The judgement in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must pay for church repairs. Terms used in a property's name, like 'abbey', may indicate chancel liability. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further.
