Q.

What type of due diligence concerning the risk of flooding to properties in Enfield will the Southgate conveyancing solicitor check for a seventies house we intend to buy?

A.

A lawyer conducts official environmental searches that incorporate Southgate flood risk data.

Q.

What are 'conveyancing searches'?

A.

Searches are a prescribed set of questions carried out for the buyer, including a local authority search. Searches will not be a substitute for a building survey.

Q.

Do you need to get a chancel liability search? We are buying a property close to church grounds in Southgate.

A.

The result of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must contribute towards church repairs. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Churches in Southgate include Christ Church.

Q.

My wife and I are purchasing a residence in Southgate. How do I check that the residence is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas pinpoint streets and neighbourhoods of historical or architectural value. Your property solicitor will offer more information and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Southgate a problem?

A.

Residential property in Southgate may have been contaminated by numerous factors caused by man and by nature, and an environmental search will confirm that a property can be impacted by contaminants including waste treatment sites in the area or existing and proposed overhead electricity cables.

Q.

Which factors help with arranging fast legal work?

A.

Firstly, finding a communicative solicitor is the key to a faster move. You should consider:

  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
