Q.

What does the Bushey property solicitor recommend if the property I am planning to buy is located in a Hertsmere local authority conservation area which appears to have conspicuous stone cladding installed?

A.

Hertsmere planning authority LLC1 searches conducted by a property lawyer during the conveyancing process will identify if the property is in a designated conservation area and evidence of local authority approval for alterations will be asked for. In the absence of any appropriate consents, your Bushey conveyancing solicitor will recommend the options, which include obtaining from the planning authority or getting covered by an indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

I am on a tight deadline, and would like organise a fast purchase, what do we need to organise?

A.

Firstly, a fast conveyancing transaction is crucial to is to use a experienced solicitor. That said, there are numerous things you as the purchaser can also do. These include:

  • promptly answering your solicitor's questions (by email if possible)
  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can
  • calling or emailing your solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays

Q.

Does your solicitor in Bushey order any property on the Hertfordshire Regency semi-detached bungalow we are buying?

A.

The regular procedure will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environmental and occasionally special local Bushey searches such as Planning report.

Q.

Will a Bushey conveyancing solicitor advise us on the risk and history of floods to properties in Bushey?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor applies for official conveyancing searches that will include Bushey flood risk data. A more in-depth search, such as the Homecheck search, could possibly be proposed by a property solicitor in Bushey if in the event that the enviro. search identify flood risk to the property.

Q.

Please advise how to avoid paying stamp duty on our purchase?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme must be treated with caution by purchasers in Bushey, as such schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount will then be due.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a property in Bovingdon. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the Bushey parish you are purchasing in, the property solicitor could advise that a chancel search is taken out. Through some church councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will remain liability-free for new owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Following recent news about the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall, we are wondering whether property conveyancing searches won't be detailed enough?

A.

The Bushey conveyancing solicitor should always apply for environmental searches if the enviro search spots a risk.

It could be worth trying to speak to a neighbour to gain further local history or local Hertfordshire flood repair expert - for example: A. J. Brockwitz & Sons Ltd, 14 Bushey Green Road, Bushey, WD23 2JQ Tel: 01923 245470.
