Q.

When my partner and I are buying a flat conversion on the same street as a 12th Century 'parson's close' in Letchworth Garden City, is it advisable that I get a chancel search?

There are over 15,000 parishes across the UK. Property owners within some of these may be required to pay for the repair of a local church. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Your conveyancing lawyer can provide more details. Letchworth Garden City Church of England properties include St George and St Thomas (centre of worship).

Q.

What is the authority that keeps records for publishing the condition of repair of conservation areas in Letchworth Garden City?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, now maintain details in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability. Conservation areas in Letchworth Garden City are set up by the local authority (North Hertfordshire) who are responsible for conservation area concerns from including things like back illuminated signs, the painting of houses and paths and footpaths.

Q.

In regards to the fact that last year was second wettest year since 1920 we are worried that conveyancing searches (environmental) aren't sufficient?

A.

An experienced Letchworth Garden City conveyancing solicitor will recommend that you get environmental searches if the environmental searches spots a significant risk of flooding in Letchworth Garden City

Sometimes buyers converse with a neighbour of the property for additional local information or local Hertfordshire flood damage builder e.g. D & P Decorators, 128 Wilbury Road, Letchworth Garden City, SG6 4JG Tel: 01462 685308.

Q.

We are buying a house in the parish of Great Berkhampstead. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the Letchworth Garden City parish in which you are purchasing, the conveyancer should confirm that a chancel search be ordered. In Letchworth Garden City's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

We've got a quote from you. Will we be invoiced any supplementary hidden costs?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors do not charge any hidden extra charges under any circumstances. You Letchworth Garden City conveyancing quote is an accurate fee the legal costs for your transaction.
