Conveyancing In Danescourt Q & A's


What factors can affect land in Danescourt. Are they a concern?

A range of contaminants caused by natural causes and human activities may potentially impair land, such as coal mining or other land contamination. An environmental search will give more detail.

What specific things do I need to look out for if I’m buying a house on the coast?

With worsening weather and floods now becoming increasingly commonplace, with the media remarking on it in depth, buying a property that has a likelihood of flooding is a difficult decision to make. Not only is there the issue of cleaning up if it does flood, but insurance premiums will be much higher (and perhaps even prohibitive).

For homes in coastal areas, there is also the problem of coastal erosion, where some properties have been seen to literally fall into the sea.

However, the good news is that picking a home in a coastal region doesn’t automatically mean that it’s going to be subject to flooding or that it’s eventually going to slip into the sea. The searches ordered by your conveyancing solicitor will identify the level of risk associated with the property and, based on this, your solicitor may recommend that you take out specialist reports (e.g. from Landmark or other organisations) to get a more in-depth description of the risks and options. These are in addition to the standard set and will be charged to you as a disbursement at cost.

Your surveyor will also be able to identify evidence of previous floods and other problems during their inspection and provide advice in their report. If the problems are considered sufficiently severe, the surveyor may also note the specifics for further investigation by your conveyancing solicitor.

Will we need a house survey for our Danescourt house purchase?

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors strongly recommend that you arrange a property surveyor to perform a survey. It is a fact that there are a range of defects that affect a property, which include poor drainage or poor ventilation.

Do I have to be present at viewings?

No, you don’t. It used to be the case that estate agencies were happy to leave the homeowner to show prospective buyers around. However, this has now been dispensed with because they won’t necessarily have the property skills and experience of dealing with and selling to a buyer. Therefore, the preference is usually that you should not be present in the home at all, although this can obviously be difficult with infirmity, working from home, and childcare.

The best option is to discuss this with the estate agent when you appoint them, so that you are aware of their expectations for each viewing, and they will be able to work around you if you have to be present in the home. Whether you are present or not, you should still take care not to be too messy and tidy up as much as possible prior to the viewing appointment, so that good impressions are maintained.

Our fixed fees and the 'No Completion, No Fee' guarantee alongside our results-focused solicitors mean that Homeward Legal is your best choice for the conveyancing. Find out more on 0800 038 6699.

How long on average should I expect it to take my assigned conveyancer to exchange contracts the legal process on an apartment in a building we are buying?

The legal process can take anywhere between one month and three months based on various things e.g. the efficiency of the vendor's property solicitor, or the speed of your lender.
