Radon in Newport

Radon Health Issues

Not generally considered a danger in low concentrations, radon gas is found in residences throughout the UK. 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 Newport sample considered 640 of the 102000 homes in the NP postcode district. The mean measurement found 54 Bq -3 with the highest recording being 590 Bq -3.

Of the sample group 22 properties were considered over the Action Level. Extrapolated, this would mean that statistically 7287 properties will exceed the acceptable Radon level. It may be a wise precaution to book a £ 50 radon test, depending on the results of the search. If no radon test has been carried out on a property in a high-risk region, sellers should consider ordering a report as soon as possible to avoid delays during a sale.

Comparing Newport solicitors conveyancing fees

Legal charges are divided into a couple of discrete components called fees and disbursements.

Solicitors fees are the amounts that the client pays to the Newport lawyer for taking care of the conveyancing.

Solicitors disbursements, e.g. a Cable and Wireless Search, are basically 3rd party charges incurred by the conveyancer and paid by the client after completion.

The technique when comparing Newport solicitors costs is to make sure you inspect the conveyancing lawyers terms of business. Additional fees may include fees for stamp duty land tax form completion.

Conveyancing for a New Build House

The shortage of existing housing stock has prompted increased new build construction.

Issues to consider when buying a newly built property include confirming that a 10-year NHBC certificate is provided.

Local Council Tax Rates and Bandings

During their enquiries, the buyers solicitor will request that the conveyancer acting for the seller confirms the council tax banding of the property. Council Tax rates for Newport are set by Newport Council.

Contaminated in Newport

How do your Newport property lawyers investigate whether your new property is built on Isle of Wight Council (in Newport) registered contaminated land ?

Newport lawyers will obtain detailed environmental searches to confirm that your new home is not within 500m of Isle of Wight Council (in Newport) registered contaminated land. The Environmental Protection Act 1990 gives a statutory definition for contaminated land used by local authorities, but for homebuyers, the term has more concerning connotations, 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. Efforts to clean up contamination can be costly.

During recent development of site found to be contaminated by radioactivity, the cost of clearing up the site ran into several million pounds.

Listedbuildings in Newport

In what way is the legal conveyancing process complicated if buying a grade II listed building?

Confirmation of a the status of a listed building will be discovered by a buyer's Conveyancing Solicitor, as part of the local search. Special interest may also apply to nationally important examples of particular building types and techniques, for example buildings displaying technological innovation or virtuosity. As the whole property is protected by listed status, if, for example, a sixteenth century house is listed, it would be an offence to demolish a twentieth century concrete garage in the grounds of the house. Owners of flats or apartments in a listed building should bear in mind that the building maintenance costs of such properties may be higher than for purpose-built blocks.

Alternatively, properties may be listed as scheduled monuments, but will still have strict guidelines governing planned works. Monuments and listed buildings in Newport include Bowl Barrow on Arreton Down, Bowl Barrow on Tapnell Down, Canal aqueduct, and Carn Briw Round Cairn.
