Q.

What type of exploration about the risk of a flood in Bromley will my property solicitor in Crofton advise on?

A.

An important part of the conveyancing protocol involves the lawyer applying for environmental searches that offer you specific information with regard to Crofton area flood risk.

Q.

We are buying on a new-build ex-industrial site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Crofton's local area has a history of contamination from industry and natural causes, like much of the UK. Other sources of contaminated land include perchlorate.

Q.

I am intending to buy a barn conversion in Ealing. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

The solicitor responsible for your move could advise a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. In Crofton's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a property where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Can we get out of paying out for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty is payable for homes over 125,000 pounds. We strongly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are highly expensive and often likely to fail. There have been a small number of government-sponsored schemes, such as disadvantaged area relief.

Q.

What do we need to know if buying a Crofton property in a Bromley planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the property legal includes the application for searches of the Bromley authority to check conservation area status and the requisite consent for modifications. .

Q.

Is contaminated land a problem in Crofton?

A.

Residential property in Crofton is contaminated by numerous human activities. Contaminants including proximity to scrap yards will be detailed in an appropriate search. Contamination can be caused by local landfill sites, including Claypit, Swine Lane, West Yorkshire, WF4 1QH.
