My husband and I are planning to buy in Romiley. Are there any conservation areas?
Locales deemed to be of architectural merit, such as mining villages, will be designated as areas of conservation. You may wish to contact the local council for more information, but your conveyancing lawyer will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.
How could conveyancing for a sale take such a long time?
The legal work needed to sell or purchase a home will occasionally be subject to numerous interruptions or delays, Homeward Legal, however, know how distracting such delays can be and endeavour to lessen their cost by chasing for prompt responses. Common delays can include waiting for a mortgage offer.
If there are outstanding works approved in the planning consent, can I still use it?
Generally speaking, planning permission legally has to have an expiry date, which is usually for a period of three years from approval for the building work to start (and not necessarily complete, unless the consent has a suitable caveat).
This means that the consent is against the property and the intended construction rather than the person who made the application. As such, if the planning consent remains within the expiry period, the agreement is transferrable to the new owner of the property.
Your solicitor will be able to provide further advice, once enquiries with the local authority have been satisfactorily completed as part of the conveyancing.
The local agent has referred a lawyer whom they usually use. Do I need to use this solicitor?
Your agent will be able to pressure a solicitor they refer a large number of clients to, and can therefore induce a slow solicitor to work faster. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
What environmental concerns can contaminate land in Romiley?
Residential property in Romiley may have been contaminated by a range of factors caused by man and by nature, and factors such as a proximate telecommunications base station will be investigated during the conveyancing process.
