Local issues considered by Sheffield Conveyancing Solicitors

:

Shared Ownership in Sheffield

There are a significant number of Shared Ownership Properties in the city. Shared ownership of a property allows someone to purchase a share in a property, instead of buying the property as a whole (usually 25%, 50% or 75%). Typically, a housing association would own the other share of the property. The greater share of the property that you own, the less rent you have to pay.

There is considerably more legal work involved in buying and selling a shared ownership property and most Solicitors will charge significantly more for this type of transaction. With Fridaysmove however, this is all covered as part of our all inclusive fee.

Transportation Concerns in Sheffield

Buyers will want to know if major roadwork's are planned in the vicinity of their prospective purchase, which might affect the property. Local authority searches should list changes to parking or speed restrictions, and other significant roadworks. 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.

Sheffield and South Yorkshire Transport Development Schemes:

We have detailed knowledge of local road and rail schemes that could affect your potential home purchase including Penniston Road, The Inner ring Road and Eccleshal Road.

Environmental Issues

Your ideal home's history may hide health risks and other dangers. Fortunately, an environmental search is there to uncover these.

Your Sheffield Conveyancing Solicitor will usually perform a search of a variety of records of issues, including

  • the historical use of the land,
  • past contaminants and polluting processes,
  • landfill,
  • waste treatment sites,
  • nearby toxic substances,
  • the probability of radon gas, and,
  • the risk of subsidence and flooding

As an Environmental Search is a review of data and records held by various sources, it does not cover unknown contaminants or environmental risks. Remediation notices can require a contaminator to clear up any contaminants. Note that if the person responsible cannot be found, the owner of the land may become liable, and be required to pay for the clear up. The technical report behind the environmental searches's conclusions may also be available. If you wish to review this, you should confirm its availability with your solicitor.
