Contaminated Land has a specific legal definition (set out in Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1990), although, it may be the case that the local authority has not yet reviewed the site in question, or does not consider the statutory definition to apply. In such cases, this information will not be included in a local authority search, making an environmental search a necessity. Buyers should be aware that prior to the full impact of industrial-use land had been understood, redevelopment often took place of old warehouses or factories without first cleaning up traces of waste chemicals.
Purchases of property in Caterham 'disadvantaged areas' are eligible for stamp duty. Local government wards or electoral divisions are used to define the boundaries of these. No stamp duty is payable on residential property purchases where the price paid is under £150,000. It may be necessary to make further enquiries with the local council, if initial searches fail to identify whether a residence lies in a disadvantaged area. That said, for any purchase below £150,000, it is worth making a simple postcode search to find out if a property is in a Disadvantaged area.

Lenders maintain panels of law firms to perform mortgage legal work. While these panels were once open, allowing any firm to join, that is no longer the case. Increasingly however, lenders have lowered the number of firms which they will accept and allow to perform this work. If a lender will not instruct a firm you have picked to perform your legal work, you have the following choices; you can either select a different lender or solicitor. It is possible to continue with your original choices, but your lender will expect you to pay for the legal costs relating to the mortgage. Bear in mind that it is usually more efficient and less expensive for the same firm act for you and your lender. Issues to consider if you intend to swap to a firm on the panel:
