Local issues considered by Manchester Conveyancing Solicitors

Flooding in ManchesterEnvironmental in ManchesterEnvironmental in Manchester

Manchester Flooding

Flood risk is one of many considerations a Manchester solicitor can investigate while performing property searches. Sources of flooding include the obvious, river and coastal flooding, but also unexpected issues such as sewer or reservoir flooding. Following the expiration of an agreement with the Government, insurers are increasingly uncomfortable with offering protection for homes at risk of flooding , so asking your solicitor to perform a thorough search at your request is the safest course. Recent flood warnings in Manchester:

  • Areas at risk include parts of Audley and Egmont Streets and Wharf Cottages - No warnings
  • Properties between Bridgewater Canal and Wythenshaw Rd and from Norris Rd to A56, in the vicinity of Sylvan Ave, Woodhouse Lane East, Framingham Rd, Brooklands Rd, Dalebrook Rd, Cranleigh Rd, Buxton Crescent, Broadley Walk and Maryport Drive - No warnings
  • Areas at risk include properties on Grace Walk, the evens side of Ancoats Grove, and parts of Palmerston Street - No warnings

Environmental Concerns in Manchester

We understand the impact environmental issues can have on a property, and will make you aware of any dangers to your Manchester dream home that an environmental search reveals.

Concerns range from minor risks to potentially deadly issues such as 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. Severely contaminated land should be investigated by the local council, although their records are not comprehensive. This is one of the reasons why a specialist environmental search is warranted. In some cases, you may also be able to review the full technical report used to prepare the search.

Local Council Tax Rates and Bandings

The sellers conveyancing solicitor will confirm the council tax banding and rates for the house or flat being sold. Manchester Council Tax rates are set by Manchester Council. 2012/13 bandings are* -
