We are purchasing a residence in Resolven. How can we verify if the residence is in a conservation area?
The areas in or near Resolven will include a range of areas of special architectural or historic interest designated as conservation areas. Living in a conservation area can mean more aesthetically pleasant surroundings, but the restrictions can add to maintenance costs. A property solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities.
We are buying in Resolven on a newly development former industrial site. Possibly chromium soil contamination may be an issue.
There are wide-ranging regulations in place to control top-soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contamination and polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs).
Is there something I can do to hold off paying stamp duty?

Should we get a chancel search if we are purchasing in the parish of Resolven, near Resolven?
Your conveyancing solicitor could advise a chancel search. Although some church councils have determined to exact chancel repairs on new owners of lay rectorships, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will remain liability-free for new owners.
I am buying a newly-constructed home, do we need conveyancing searches?
Conveyancing searches are common set of enquiries undertaken in the interest of the purchaser. Searches are not a substitute for a survey.
Environmental searches may be standard procedure for home buyers but considering climate change for example the serious river flooding in Wales are they actually good enough to confirm sufficient information about the evolving local Resolven flood risk?
An experienced property solicitor in Resolven should also get informative flood searches from Landmark if the initial searches establishes a any kind of the local Resolven flood risk
You could also try to speak to a local resident for added assurance.
