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

Chancel in Newport

Newport Chancel Searches

Chancel repair liability refers to a legally-enforceable right some Newport churches possess, obliging local homeowners to pay for repairs.

Buyers should be aware that chancel repair can cost hundreds of thousands of pounds. This dates back to the medieval period, when churches (or more specifically their chancels) were maintained by wealthy owners of rectorial land. Since this time, large estates have been broken down into 100's or 1, 000's of privately owned properties. Note that there is not a risk-free distance from a church which ensures that liability will not apply.

The future of this liability in Newport

The Government acknowledges that the existence of a liability for chancel repair will affect the value of the property in question. In many cases, this effect can be mitigated by relatively inexpensive insurance, but in order to make the process of identifying affected land as fast as possible, new legislation requires the church to register their interest before 2003. Insurance is usually dependent on the size of the property and its value, and consists of a one-off premium. Cover is usually up to 3 million. The property lawyer handling your transaction will be able to give more specific details, but insurance is available in the majority of cases.

Welsh conveyancing transactions are less likely to need such a search.

Flooding in Newport

Flooding in parts of Newport

During the conveyancing process, your lawyer can undertake a flood risk assessment. There is some uncertainty over whether banks and insurers will insure buildings with a greater chance of flooding, and this is why performing additional enquiries to determine a building's flood risk is recommended.
