The vendor has added unfitting dormer windows to the property which may violate the Haworth conservation area criteria.
West Lindsey local authority LLC1 searches carried out by your Saxilby conveyancing solicitor should determine whether the Saxilby property a designated conservation area and evidence of permission for alterations will be requested. Should no appropriate permissions be provided, the solicitor will recommend the best alternative which may include getting an indemnity insurance or seeking retrospective consent.
Should the form for fixtures and fittings list bathroom suites?
In the main, there is no legal definition of fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.
What type of local searches regarding the potential risk of possible flooding in the Lincolnshire area will the conveyancing solicitor in Saxilby carry out for a Regency maisonette we are intending to buy?
Your conveyancing solicitor applies for standard environmental searches that incorporate Saxilby area flood risk information. A substantially more flood search, for instance the Landmark search, will sometimes be proposed by the Saxilby conveyancer if the results of the initial searches identify a potential flood risk to the Regency maisonette.
If I want to build an extension or do other works once I move in, can I get a builder to visit to give me a quote?
There is nothing stopping you trying to organise this, so long as you set a date and time that’s acceptable to the vendor (or via their estate agent if they are unable to be there) and try to establish how long the process will take, so that this can be booked in.
This becomes particularly critical following a surveyor’s inspection where remedial works are identified and recommended. You can use the quote from the builder as a renegotiation tool on the asking price, if the work required is going to be particularly costly. If you decide to go down this route, it must be done before exchange of contracts (where you’re committing to the sale price) and you should inform your solicitor if you’ve had private discussions and agreements with the vendor over price for inclusion in the terms of the contract.
Would you advise that I get a chancel search if we are buying in Saxilby near a 15th Century rectory manor?
Owners of property neighbouring local churches must contribute towards the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Church of England properties in the area where chancel liability may apply include St Botolph.
Is it hard to sell a property located in a conservation area?
A conservation area is designated and managed by the local authority to ensure the unique nature of the location is maintained by placing restrictions on changes to the buildings, street furniture and green spaces to protect the architectural or historical interest of everything within the conservation area boundary.
Because of this resistance to change, this usually means homes in conservation areas are more attractive to buyers, and, as such, there may be a premium to pay over properties outside such areas. Because of the attraction of such property, they will usually sell well and quickly. However, there will need to be greater checks by the buyer’s solicitor to verify that your property conforms to the conservation area restrictions, which may add extra time to the duration of the conveyancing.
