Q.

We need a cheap solicitor to own a leasehold house. What should be watch out for?

A.

This topic catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Any additional costs should be fair and clearly defined.

Q.

How does my solicitor in Caddington report back on the risk and history of local flooding in the Caddington region?

A.

An experienced property lawyer will apply for official environmental searches that incorporate Caddington flood risk information. A more thorough dedicated flood risk search, for instance the Landmark search, will typically be recommended by a Caddington solicitor if the results of the environmental search indicate a risk of flooding.

Q.

The property seller has unfortunately installed windows to the maisonette which we think might possibly breach Kirk Merrington conservation area criteria.

A.

Central Bedfordshire council Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search carried out by your Caddington conveyancing solicitor as part of the conveyancing will check if the property is within a designated conservation area and evidence of local authority approval for additions to the property will be required. In the event

that no local authority consents be available your conveyancing solicitor will inform you of all options like buying an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective approval from the appropriate local authority.

Q.

Can we establish whether the building we are buying is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas characterise areas of 'special architectural and historic interest'. Caddington itself is named as a conservation area. The advantages of these restrictions will include security that the surroundings are unlikely to change, but they adds to upkeep costs. Your solicitor will be able to provide more details.

Q.

As a result of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began we are apprehensive that conveyancing and environmental searches won't be thorough enough?

A.

A Caddington conveyancing solicitor will suggest that you include flood risk searches if the standard search establishes a any kind of Caddington flood risk area data

You can get in touch with a neighbour to get added local history if you are still worried.

Q.

Which actual searches should a lawyer in Caddington conduct when instructed on a Caddington home?

A.

The standard conveyancing protocol will be to get Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and specific local Caddington searches, like a HS2 report.
