Do you need to obtain a coal and brine conveyancing search when purchasing a house or flat in Bristol?
Mining - of coal, metal ores and other minerals - has been carried out across the country since the copper age of prehistory. Residential property may be affected by old underground workings, especially if there is still a risk of subsidence. Buyers' conveyancing solicitors carry out a standard form of search with the Coal Authority when a property is in an area where mining was known to have taken place or where coal is known to exist. A coal search will indicate whether any opencast workings have taken place or are planned in the vicinity. Although this may have less direct ongoing impact on property, the existence of large opencast workings in the vicinity can have an adverse effect while coal is being extracted. Should a search reveal former mining activity in close proximity then a further survey may be required. There is no single source of information about areas where other minerals were mined, but these workings mostly occur in areas where there is fortunately no significant housing.
There are approximately 37 areas in Bristol where a mining search is required. These include; Easton, Speedwell, Bedminster Down, Barton Hill, Stockwood, Brislington and Knowle.
Conveyancing for a New Build Property
If acquiring a new build property, purchasers would generally have to exchange and commit to buy the property before building work on the property is finished. There are unique pros and cons when purchasing newly built property. Pros include better insulation and hence energy efficiency, whereas negatives include the build schedule's potential for delay.
Things to consider when purchasing a newly built home include confirming that the contract allows for access via adjoining property, e.g. for repairs.
