Q.

Are 'conveyancing searches' that necessary?

A.

These searches are standard queries ordered by the buyer's conveyancing lawyer with local and national authorities. Whether

buying in Welling or elsewhere, you should be aware that, conveyancing searches refer specifically to facets affecting the legal title.

Q.

How is Welling contaminated land checked?

A.

Several contaminants can impair land in Welling. Issues including proposed erection of mobile masts should be reported on during conveyancing searches.

Q.

Myself and my partner are buying in Welling. Are there any conservation areas in the area?

A.

With over 8,000 conservation areas throughout the country, the areas around Welling will include a range of areas of historical or architectural value registered as protected. Your solicitor will provide more details and confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

Q.

Is Welling soil possibly contaminated by cobalt?

A.

Given the history of industry and agriculture in parts of Welling, top-soil contamination is difficult to avoid. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Welling, including local authorities.

Q.

The lender will be Co-operative Bank, what do we need to consider?

A.

House buyers should know that, in some cases, lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly greater conveyancing costs. We can act on behalf of the vast majority of UK mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

What do I need to be aware of when buying a flat within the boundary of a Bexley council designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the property legal includes carrying out searches of the Bexley authority to determine conservation area status and the existence of permission for changes. Should no local authority consents be in evidence the solicitor will inform you of the alternatives which can include getting an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective permission from Bexley council.
