Q.

Which issues are important to ensure fast legal work?

Primarily, a fast completion is the key to is to employing a proactive, diligent property lawyer. There are several tasks you, as the purchaser, can also do to accelerate the process, including, completing all forms as soon as possible, arranging any finances require to complete the purchase and keeping in regular contact with the property lawyer.

Q.

Can I get out of paying SDLT?

Q.

Will the Lydney property lawyer apply for any property on the Gloucestershire Victorian terraced house I am purchasing

A.

The conventional procedure will be to get the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search and perhaps area-specific searches, like a Index Map.

Q.

Can Lydney former industrial site soil still be contaminated?

A.

There are wide-ranging regulations in place to control soil contamination. Metal contamination of soil in Lydney is more likely to occur near ex-industrial or waste handling sites. Data on other contaminants, like water contaminants such as industrial chemicals, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

If we are buying near Lydney, in the parish of Thornbury, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Through some church councils have opted to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future. For property in the parish of Thornbury, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How long does we account for the legal work to buy a home take, in your opinion?

A.

The time taken to buy or sell property does vary, based on a number of legal considerations including whether the property being bought or sold is leasehold. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, whereas our solicitors will, wherever feasible, work towards a six-week timescale.
