Q.

Having heard about the extensive flooding last year in the Midlands we are wondering whether conveyancing searches might not be thorough enough?

Q.

Is it recommended to get a chancel search? We are buying a house by a 15th Century 'church furlong' in Little Bromwich.

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Little Bromwich property likely to be affected.

Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability.

Q.

English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created records of the condition of conservation areas as well as the trend of the area.

Q.

What type of checks into the risk and history of flooding in the Birmingham region will the Little Bromwich property solicitor actually apply for?

A.

An experienced conveyancer will carry out formal conveyancing and environmental searches that should include Little Bromwich flood risk information. At the time of writing reports on the Environment Agency do not list any active flood warnings in the Little Bromwich area.

Q.

What should I be aware of if we buy a period house in a Birmingham council conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the property legal includes the making of enquiries of Sandwell planning authority to determine conservation area status and the existence of permission for modifications. .
