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.
Council road and rail projects can be a major inconvenience, or boon, to local residents. People moving into the Caterham area should be aware of how these will affect their property. Your solicitor will undertake relevant searches to showa broad range of construction and development projects, and bureaucratic issues such as parking restrictions. If a search shows that a property is affected, it will be necessary for the buyers Conveyancing Solicitor to contact the relevant highway authority for more details.
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.
