Local issues considered by Carlisle Conveyancing Solicitors

Trees in CarlisleRoadandrail in CarlisleEnvironmental in Carlisle

Tree Preservation Orders

It is important for a Carlisle buyer to know if a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) affects any trees on the property being purchased. If an application is being made to remove a tree completely, the council can ask for a replacement tree to be planted elsewhere as a condition of giving consent. If a newer property is affected by a planning condition imposed upon the original builders, it would be a breach of planning control to remove any trees this condition required the developer to plant. By obtaining copies of any TPOs impacting your property before you go on the market, you will improve your chances of a faster transaction when you do find a buyer.

Local Transport Issues

Transport projects are rightly a concern for homebuyers, given both the disruption they can create, and the long-term impact they can have on a house's value. Local authority searches should list any proposals for the following in respect of any highway adjoining the property:

  • making it one-way
  • permanently stopping it up or diverting it
  • introducing parking restrictions or changing existing restrictions (including residents parking permits)
  • introducing width or weight restrictions
  • speed restrictions, traffic calming measures including speed humps (sleeping policemen)
  • cycle tracks
In rarer cases, the council may install a 'no entry' sign or similar restriction, preventing access to a road. Such an action may not technically be a 'scheme' and therefore may not be mentioned in searches.

Environmental Concerns in Carlisle

Environmental factors affecting both property prices and the health and safety of homeowners continue to make headlines. Environmental factors which may affect a property include

  • records of subsidence or flooding,
  • historical use of the land,
  • any previous contamination,
  • nearby landfill sites or waste treatment, or,
  • the likelihood of radon gas exposure

An environmental search should confirm, based on the criteria of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, whether a property is (or is on) contaminated land. Liability could pass to the owner of a property if the council cannot identify the original person responsible for the contamination. Buyers should be aware of this, as the costs can be considerable. In some cases, you may also be able to review the full technical report used to prepare the search.
