Bedford is the county town of Bedfordshire, in the East of England. The urban area includes Kempston, Elstow and Biddenham. Searches for Conveyancing in Bedford are carried out through Bedford Borough Council at Borough Hall, Cauldwell Street, Bedford, MK42 9AP.
There are a number of properties within Bedford (including those formerly owned by the council or built on land that was owned) affected by covenants attached to their freehold title that restrict both the land-use, and certain types of development that their owners may carry out. The Solicitor handling your Conveyancing in Bedford will make enquiries to the council on your behalf to find out whether the said covenants can be removed.
There is wide selection of terraced housing and ex-council properties in Bedford town centre, including both apartment blocks and also a number of modern developments, particularly near the two stations, Bedford rail station in the town centre, and St John. Given the ready access to the capital via First Capital Connect, Bedford is ideal for commuters and purchasers looking for buy-to-let opportunities.
Kempston is a district located to the south-west of Bedford, South of the River Great Ouse and West of the railway. Properties in this area include:
New-builds such as the recent townhouses on King William Road and Ryswick Road's modern terraces, and the fairly recent Hillgrounds.
This is the liability of a property owner to contribute to the cost of repair of the chancel of a church. It was felt that the absence of a central database and poor record keeping would mean a liability dating back to medieval Britain would be difficult to prove, but homebuyers are not advised to rely on this.
Some churches in the Bedford area include St John's, St John's Parish Office, 38 St John's Street, Bedford, MK42 0DL, Rutland Road Church, The Old Registry, 3 Brereton Road, Bedford, MK40 1HU, Christ Church, Christ Church Office, Denmark Street, Bedford, MK40 3TJ, and Grace Community Church, 229 Bedford Road, Kempston, Bedford, MK42 8DA.
Proper consents must be sought for alterations to property in Pavenham, Biddenham, Podington, Bletsoe, Riseley, Cardington, Roxton, Carlton and Chellington Sharnbrook, Elstow, Stevington, Farndish, Stewartby, Felmersham, Swineshead, Great Barford, Thurleigh, Green End and Great Barford Hill, Turvey, Harrold, Upper Dean, Kempston, Wootton and Odell.
Affected Bedford homes are subject to potentially onerous planning restrictions, set out in the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990. A local search will also reveal details of any listed building planning consents relating to the property, in addition to other planning information. Fortunately, the planning process is not intended to stop any alterations to a listed building.
Your solicitor may instead inform you that the property is, or contains, a scheduled monument, and is protected by a similar set of restrictions. Such properties include All Saints Church, Segenhoe, Barford Bridge, Bedford Bridge, and Bromham Bridge.
