I am looking for affordable conveyancing. and what is included?


Many law firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges will be included in small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any additional charges listed in the small print needs to be clearly defined.


Is contaminated land an issue in Hatfield?


Land could be contaminated by a range of naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search should reveal if a specific residence may be impacted by contaminants like proximity to waste sites and a proximate telecommunications base station. Contamination can be caused by Hatfield waste sites, including Bedwell Park Quarry, Bedwell Park Avenue, Hertfordshire, AL9 6AA.


We are buying in Hatfield. How can we check if the property is in a conservation area?


Conservation areas detail regions defined as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. Your conveyancing solicitor will offer more information and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.


What kind of local environmental checks in respect to the risk of possible flooding in the Hertfordshire area will a property solicitor in Hatfield actually apply for?

A solicitor applies for formal environmental searches that incorporate Hatfield historical flood risk information.


Having read about the fact that 4 of the top 5 wettest years recorded were in last 12 years we are anxious that flood risk searches won't be sufficient?


Property conveyancing searches conducted by your lawyer in Hatfield will also include a far more specialist Landmark flood search if required.

If you are concerned try to contact a neighbour or local resident or nearby Hertfordshire flood repair expert - for example: C B Decorators, 9 Briars Wood, Hatfield, AL10 8DA Tel: 01707 275274.
