Q.

I need to find a property lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing in Garstang. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Numerous firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print that unknowing homeowners have not reviewed

Q.

Will we need to get a chancel search when you are buying on the same road as a church in Garstang?

A.

Where land in Garstang was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to pay for repairs to older church buildings. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Garstang churches include St Helen's Catherdral of the Fylde and St Thomas.

Q.

Property environmental searches are computed from past records but when one considers climate change like major flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, are they the best way to advise me enough about the changing risk of flooding in Garstang?

A diligent Garstang conveyancing solicitor will suggest that you apply for environmental searches if the environmental conveyancing searches establishes a Garstang flood risk area

Perhaps you could converse with a neighbour to get further peace of mind.

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Garstang, but some very localised cases of contamination in Garstang may pose unacceptably high risk. Data on many contaminants, such as acidic compounds and water contaminants such as phenols, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

If I am buying near Garstang, in the parish of Walton on the Hill, do we need a chancel search?

Whether you are buying a house in Garstang or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be ordered. In Garstang's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

What authority keeps records for monitoring the condition of Garstang conservation areas?

A.

Local Garstang conservation areas e.g. public spaces, removal of chimney stacks or street posts are handled by the local authority (Wyre). Following a campaign, English Heritage have conducted a survey and created records of the state of repair of conservation areas.

Q.

What can contaminate land in Garstang, and should they be a concern?

A range of contaminants may impact land, and factors such as proximity to waste sites and other land contamination will be considered as part of the environmental searches. Contamination can be caused by Garstang waste sites, including Catterall Gates Lane, Catterall, PR3 1XP.

Q.

How might the sale conveyancing process be so drawn out?

Conveyancing in Garstang may take more time than budgeted. We do our best to minimise the impact of these delays by using fast search providers. Reasons for delay include the time taken to return management information.
