Will I need a house survey for our house purchase?

It seems that iron soil contamination may be an issue in Llanallgo. Please advise.
With the history of industry in parts of Llanallgo, top-soil contamination is impossible to completely avoid. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as radioactive waste and water contaminants such as industrial chemicals.
Does your solicitors company handle the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Llanallgo?
Our firm is very competent with sellers at auction. Normally difficult to value auction lots are included at auction which demand additional examination. We therefore strongly encourage buyers at auction to appoint a local property lawyer before the property auction date so there is time for a thorough review.
Following the property auction your now prepared conveyancing lawyer will be prepared for concluding the legal work within the limited time frame as conventionally required .
Should I opt for the conveyancing named by the local agent?
Agent referrals are a common practice route for buyers to find a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, it may be the case that the agent recommends the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
Are the many areas of conservation in Llanallgo likely to affect us?
The neighbourhoods in or near Llanallgo will include several areas of special architectural or historic interest designated as areas of conservation. Your solicitor will be able to provide more details and discuss the relevant responsibilities.
Is there a checklist for buyers or sellers helping to decide what’s most important?
The process of buying and selling is a complex one, so it’s helpful for your research to have checklists to ensure nothing is forgotten. There are several online resources with checklists for individual aspects of the moving process, including what to consider as a first-time buyer, help to buy schemes, removals, speeding up conveyancing and so on.
When it comes to deciding what you want for your new home to help you narrow down the choice of locations and types of property available, this is largely down to personal choice, so a standardised checklist might limit your requirements. You can talk to an estate agent about what you want as they will have the experience to narrow down your options. However, you need to consider the size of the property (number of rooms, bathroom facilities, bedrooms, etc.), size of garden, proximity to public transport links, noise, entertainment options (e.g. cinema, pub, eateries, etc.), access to off-road parking, schools, speed of broadband, and so on. Consider making a list of what the property must have and an associated wish list so that likely compromises can be made.
What’s the difference between residential and commercial conveyancing?
In essence, there is very little difference between the tasks needed for residential conveyancing against commercial conveyancing. The real difference comes in the type of property and the purpose for which it is intended to be used.
The majority of residential transactions are freehold, whereas commercial transactions are almost exclusively leasehold, and commercial property conveyancing searches will tend to be more expensive because the structure and land will occupy a greater space on average than that for residential property.
