Q.

Will a local lawyer in Middlesbrough do personal or official searches on my property purchase?

A.

What does a Middlesbrough property lawyer do if the home we want to buy is in a registered conservation area and has unlawful roof antenna added?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor will always determine whether the property is within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have necessary permission. In the event that no local authority consents can be provided, your solicitor will recommend all options e.g. purchasing an indemnity insurance or seeking retrospective approval from the council.

Q.

I am interested in purchasing in Middlesbrough. Are there many conservation areas in the area?

A.

There are numerous conservation areas around Middlesbrough. Living in a conservation area can mean a more attractive neighbourhood, but the restrictions adds to upkeep costs. A conveyancing solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities.
