Q.

I am buying a 1940s property within a conservation area in North East London. How do we locate information on the standard of upkeep?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have put together records of the condition of conservation areas in England in addition to the vulnerability. Local North East London conservation areas are set up by the local Waltham Forest planning authority, who govern conservation area concerns from whether trees can be cut down to poorly maintained roads.

Q.

In regards to the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall we are questioning whether flood searches won't be sufficient?

Environmental searches applied for by your North East London property solicitor should also include a far more rigorous flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you remain nervous you could consider contacting a neighbour.

Q.

How long can we allow for the legal work to transact a flat take, in your opinion?

The vendor looks to have added incongruous windows to the property in North East London which might defy conservation area criteria

A.

The conveyancing solicitor will find out whether the property is within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the requisite consents.

A.

There is no reason why you should not take care of the legal work without an expert North East London lawyer. In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a long list of exercises ranging from raising additional enquiries or apportioning service charges many of which are better done by someone with a qualified professional. Fundamentally have a go conveyancers will be working without the appropriate insurance that legal firms need to carry.

Q.
