Radon in Manchester

Radon Health Issues

Radon is an odourless, and occurs at higher concentrations in some parts than others. Occupiers could be at risk of a number of health issues, including lung cancer, if dangerous concentrations of the gas build up in their homes. Factoring up from Health Protection Agency surveys, it is estimated that 1 in 100 buildings are at or above the actionable (safe) level of Radon. The Manchester sample considered 66 of the 102000 homes in the M postcode district. The mean measurement found 12 Bq -3 with the highest recording being 41 Bq -3.

The sample group did not actually find any properties above the Action Level. However as this is only a sample it does not mean that no homes in the Manchester area exceed the action level, merely that the probability is that they don't. If during the Conveyancing in Manchester, the environmental search carried indicates a high probability of Radon, it is possible to order a cost effective Radon test (roughly £ 50). Buyers of homes in a region known to be a risk will wish to see a copy of any previous test report, so sellers should consider preparing this in advance.

Development in Manchester

Development and transport works:

A number of strategic schemes affecting the area have been proposed by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (a newly-formed strategic authority with powers over public transport, housing, regeneration, waste management, and planning permission). Such works may affect the value of the property, or the buyer's future enjoyment of it, and hence a Conveyancing Solicitor should investigate on their behalf.

Mining in Manchester

Will you require a Coal & Brine Report (Coal Authority) if you purchase a house in Manchester?

There has never been any central record of all mines, so it can be difficult to find comprehensive information about mining activity in or near Manchester. The mining search provides information on the following:

  • Records of coal mining activity in the vicinity, whether past, current, or planned
  • Records of any former mine-shafts nearby
  • Information about previous subsidence known to have taken place, including details of previous damage claims
  • Details of coal seams known to exist beneath the property

After all the coal has been removed from an area mined with modern methods, the site should be restored. Discarded waste, spoil, or smelting by-products may have soiled parts of Manchester located near defunct older mines. An environment search may also be required in these cases. solicitors acting for property buyers in potentially affected parts of Manchester will make a search with one of a number of companies who have assembled data relating to local mine workings.

Contaminated in Manchester

Do conveyancing property lawyers in Manchester search for if the home you are buying is built on Manchester City Council (in Manchester) registered contaminated land ?

Manchester solicitor will commission in depth standard searches to make sure the home you are buying is not affected by local authority defined contaminated land.

There are 1000s of sites contaminated by previous use throughout the country, and if land on or near a property is recognised as contaminated within the statutory definition, this information will be included in a local search. Landowners whose land is contaminated may be liable for the cost of remedial works, and the cost implications can be substantial. A premium to cover loss of a homes value, or costs associated with remedial work, may be advised. These are generally inexpensive. Homes in Manchester built on contaminated land may be largely harmless to residents, but there are a number of risks, such as exposure to toxic metals, waste chemicals, and radioactive material.

Advice when comparing Manchester solicitors conveyancing fees

Manchester solicitors legal costs are made up of two individual parts described as disbursements and legal fees.

conveyancing fees are the sums that the buyer or seller pays to the Manchester solicitor for completing the legal process.

Legal disbursements, like a FloodSolutions Residence or forfeiture of lease indemnity insurance, are just extra fees incurred by the conveyancing solicitor for you.

The key to comparing Manchester conveyancing solicitors costs is to rifle through the solicitors terms of business.

Manchester New Build Conveyancing

If purchasing a new build, buyers would generally expect to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase before the building work is completed.

When buying newly built houses and flats be sure to check that the builders are NHBC members. By instructing a conveyancing solicitor early, your purchase has a greater chance of proceeding without major incident.
