Local information:

Nottinghamshire's closest train station is Nottingham. Tollerton, Nottingham City Airport is 4 miles from Nottinghamshire. East Midlands Airport is 13 miles, Tollerton Airport is 5 miles and Gamston Airport is 23 miles away.

The Castle Consulting Centre is the most convenient hospital to Nottinghamshire.

Q.

I am trying to find an affordable conveyancing quote. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Numerous law firms offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Chargeswhich are listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

How will my Nottinghamshire solicitor investigate the potential risk of a flood to properties in Nottinghamshire?

A.

A vital component in the conveyancing procedure involves a conveyancer conducting environmental searches that provide specific information with respect to Nottinghamshire flood risk.

Q.

Is a PI contribution a disbursement or fee?

A.

Comparing conveyancing quotes can be difficult, considering wide variations in formatting and terminology. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

We are buying on a newly development ex-industrial use land. Is cadmium soil contamination likely?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Nottinghamshire, but some very localised cases of contamination in Nottinghamshire may pose unacceptably high risk. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contaminants like landfill leachate, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Is it possible that some of the designated Nottinghamshire conservation areas are designated as at risk?

A.

The inventory of the condition of Nottinghamshires conservation areas is filed by English Heritage and this areas and information are accessible at the English Heritage website- Eastwood is recorded as very bad with high vulnerability and no significant change, Kimberley is recorded as very bad with high vulnerability and unknown, Nuthall is recorded as very bad with high vulnerability and no significant change, Attenborough is recorded as optimal with high vulnerability and deteriorating, Newark is recorded as very bad with medium vulnerability and deteriorating, Ollerton is recorded as very bad with high vulnerability and unknown, Walesby is recorded as very bad with medium vulnerability and no significant change, Tuxford is recorded as very bad with medium vulnerability and deteriorating significantly.

Q.

As a consequence of the major flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands we are apprehensive that environmental searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Flood risk searches applied for by the conveyancer in Nottinghamshire will include the more thorough Landmark flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are nervous you could get in touch with a local resident.

Q.

My local agent has offered the firm of solicitors which they often use. Do we need to instruct them?

A.

Your agent will often recommend a law firm. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Are there any areas of conservation in Nottinghamshire?

A.

Buyers in Nottinghamshire should be aware of a number of local conservation areas. Eastwood, Kimberley and Nuthall are among the conservation areas in Nottinghamshire. These restrictions can make repairs more costly or time-consuming, but the benefits will include properties can be easier to sell.
