Local key data:

Nottingham train station is about 2 miles from Radford. Radford's closest airport is Tollerton, Nottingham City Airport. East Midlands Airport is 11 miles s, Tollerton Airport is 5 miles and Gamston Airport is 25 miles away.

Queens Medical Centre, Derby Road is a relatively close hospital.

Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a £346,000 residence?

A.

Many online and high street firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Can you suggest how to bypass paying stamp duty on the purchase?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation scheme is not recommended. Such schemes are expensive and very risky.

Q.

Will I need to get a chancel search if I am buying next to a church constructed in the 1500s in Radford?

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Radford which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for upkeep of an old church building. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Radford must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Church properties in the local area where a chancel search may be appropriate include All Souls, St Peter Old and St. Nicholas.

Q.

How can hurry up and complete on the conveyancing on our co-owned share of freehold flat in under 30 days, do you work with any fast Radford conveyancers ?

Regularly property lawyers are unhurried causing huge pressure to the property conveyancing process.

With Homeward Legal, firm attempt to communicate to the whole home buyer and seller chain and who always use leading edge online completion systems to exchange on your house move swiftly.

Q.

We are buying on a Radford brownfield site. Is uranium (U) topsoil contamination likely?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, if significant harm could be caused to people or protected species by the contamination, it is likely to be labelled contaminated land. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contamination and chlorinated solvents.

Q.

What particular property searches will the Radford property solicitor get for a Radford property?

A.

Normal legal protocol will be to get the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search, Environment Search and Gypsum Mining and occasionally particular searches, like Index Map Search.

Q.

I am buying a home in the parish of Bunny with Bradmore. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

A property solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is taken out, whichever parish where the building being bought is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will remain liability-free for new owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Would arranging a building survey be required if we are buying a property, irrespective of its condition, in Radford?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly recommend that most purchasers arrange a RICS survey when purchasing in Radford. Buyers should be aware that there are many defects that can negatively affect a property, such as unsafe chimney circulation. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.
