Q.

We are buying on a new development ex-industrial use land. Is the soil possibly contaminated by waste minerals like titanium (Ti)?

A.

There are considerable regulations to curtail soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including herbicides and water contaminants such as oil.

Q.

Is it wise to avoid paying out for stamp duty?

A.

We do not recommend purchasers expose their finances to any stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .

Q.

We are buying a restored chapel in the parish of Walmersley. Is a chancel search needed?

A.

The solicitor instructed to handle the transaction is likely to recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the house being bought is located. In Stockbridge Village's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Property lawyers in Stockbridge Village get standard conveyancing searches when acting for a home buyer,, but which particular ones?

A.

If purchasing and obtaining a mortgage a mortgage lender requires you to - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environmental and perhaps unique particular such as Commons Search.

Q.

Where look for check if the Stockbridge Village conservation area I am buying in is not being properly maintained?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, maintain a list about the state of conservation areas in Stockbridge Village and throughout England as well as the exposure to a worsening of the condition of the area.

Conservation areas are specified by Liverpool who preserve the state of the area including things like street posts, coloured road surfaces and area development.

Q.

Do you have low cost solicitors that manage the conveyancing of property auction properties in Stockbridge Village?

A.

Our company is able to act for sellers at auction. Frequently unusually constructed properties are listed in property auctions which require additional review. Homeward Legal therefore suggest bidders to appoint an affordable conveyancing solicitor well in advance of the date of the auction to allow adequate time for a detailed investigation.

Following the day of bidding a prepared lawyer should be focused on briskly carry out the conveyancing within 28 days as typically required by the terms and conditions of sale.
