Is it practical to carry out the legal conveyancing process without help.


Theoretically speaking there are no arguments why a buyer cant handle the legal work unaided.

However, a Cottesmore lawyer carries out a large number of assignments e.g. chasing deeds and DS1 documents and identifying the most appropriate searches which really need training. Additionally legal practices need to possess sufficient cover to safeguard you from any professional omissions.


We are buying on a Cottesmore ex-industrial site. Is copper (Cu) top-soil contamination likely?


Measures are taken throughout Cottesmore to identify soil contamination. Metal contamination of soil in Cottesmore is more likely to occur near disused factories or waste management sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like hydrocarbons and perchlorate, will also be included in an environmental search.


What do we need to know about fixtures and fittings?


Commonly, fixtures are permanently fixed to walls, floors or ceilings securely and fixtures are free-standing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.


Do we need to use a law firm put forward by the estate agent?


If you opt for a solicitor referred this way, you the agent is able to exert pressure on a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible, however, these referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.


Which local factors can impact land in Cottesmore, and will they be thoroughly investigated?


A wide range of contaminants can reduce the value of residential property in Cottesmore, like other sources of contaminated land and waste treatment sites in the area. An environmental search will give more information.
