Conveyancing In Kenley Q & A's
Is soil in Kenley contaminated by titanium?
The risks posed by soil contamination to Kenley inhabitants are usually low. Also considering issues such as groundwater contamination and ammonia, contaminants affecting Kenley property will be factored into an environmental search.
If there are outstanding works approved in the planning consent, can I still use it?
Generally speaking, planning permission legally has to have an expiry date, which is usually for a period of three years from approval for the building work to start (and not necessarily complete, unless the consent has a suitable caveat).
This means that the consent is against the property and the intended construction rather than the person who made the application. As such, if the planning consent remains within the expiry period, the agreement is transferrable to the new owner of the property.
Your solicitor will be able to provide further advice, once enquiries with the local authority have been satisfactorily completed as part of the conveyancing.
