Do many designated conservation areas in Dewsbury have the potential to affect us?

A.

Locales deemed to be of historic or architectural significance, such as mining villages, will be recorded as conservation areas. The conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase should be able to offer more information and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

We are purchasing a 1920's house. Do we need searches?

A.

Conveyancing searches are enquiries requested by your solicitor, which may include a local authority search. Searches cannot be used in place of a survey and will not identify structural issues like rotten roof timbers.

Q.

What does the Dewsbury property lawyer do if the building I want to buy is inside the boundary of a conservation area and has unapproved satellite dishes fitted?

A.

The lawyer to verify whether the property is within a conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have appropriate consents from the Wakefield planning authority.

Q.

Our agent has named the law firm. Will it be easier to instruct this firm?

Q.

How long will it take my conveyancer to handle all of the conveyancing formalities on the top floor of recently developed home in Dewsbury?

A.

It can take anywhere from a month to 12 weeks contingent on any number of issues, like the speed of the seller's property solicitor, or the time taken getting replies to enquiries.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a barn conversion in Birkin. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor responsible for your move could recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
