A.

The time needed to sell or purchase a house is not wholly predictable. This is affected by several issues including if management information is required. For most

Q.

First Active is our lender, what do I need to know?

A.

When taking out a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Buyers should know that a small number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased conveyancing costs for property buyers. We, however, can act for most lenders.

Q.

Is gazumping accepted in Moor Park?

A.

This arises when a owner accepts the first buyer's offer, only to refuse it in favour of a greater offer. This may happen even months into a purchase. There is almost always a chance of being gazumped. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer.

Q.

The property being bought is on a ex-industrial site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like tin (Sn)?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Moor Park, but if significant harm could be caused to people or protected species by the contamination, it is likely to be labelled contaminated land. Metal contamination of soil in Moor Park is more likely to occur near ex-industrial or waste handling sites. Data on other contaminants, like chlorinated solvents and groundwater contaminants like silage, will also be included in an environmental search.
