Trees in South West England

South West England Tree Preservation Orders

In cases where houses have been built on land subject to an existing tree preservation order (TPO), it will be necessary to obtain a copy of this TPO from the council to check the plan. This is necessary to confirm whether this existing TPO directly affects the newer property. In order to approve consent, the local authority may request that replacement trees be planted. Trees planted in accordance with a condition placed on new build property developers are not necessarily subject to a TPO.

Disadvantaged in South West England

Does your South West England purchase qualify for Stamp Duty Relief?

Disadvantaged Areas Relief may be available in nearly 2, 000 areas throughout the UK. Local government wards or electoral divisions are used to define the boundaries of these. These disadvantaged areas do not always coincide with postcode districts, so the postcode search tool cannot always be relied on. It may be necessary to make further enquiries with the local council, if initial searches fail to identify whether a residence lies in a disadvantaged area. For a purchase below the threshold, it is worth making a simple postcode search to find out if a property is in a disadvantaged area.

Environmental in South West England

South West England solicitors will get an Environmental Report in order to reveal any serious local environmental concerns

Environmental factors are becoming increasingly relevant in influencing purchasers, lenders and insurers decisions. Concerns range from minor risks to potentially deadly issues such as radon gas exposure.

As an Environmental Search is a review of data and records held by various sources, it does not cover unknown contaminants or environmental risks. Severely contaminated land should be investigated by the local council, although their records are not comprehensive. This is one of the reasons why a specialist environmental search is warranted. In some cases, you may also be able to review the full technical report used to prepare the search.

Flooding in South West England

Flood Risk in South West England

Flood risk is one of many considerations a South West England property solicitor can investigate while performing property searches. In addition to seasonal causes, including rivers and tidal effects, flooding can result for diverse issues like rising groundwater. A flooding map tool is maintained by the Environment Agency to help property buyers in South West England check homes.

Recently in Chippenham, Wiltshire, locals held a fair which aimed to give out information and advice on how to prepare and deal with flooding. The Operational Flood Working Group organised the event, and they encouraged communities to make flood plans and find volunteer flood wardens. According to a spokesman, flooding had become more severe of recent years in the county. An Environmental Search should be carried out in order to flag up any concerns in relation to environmental issues.

Increase the likelihood of Fast Conveyancing in South West England

Your South West England conveyancing solicitor will take action to push your sale or purchase through to completion, meaning that they will chase the other parties involved in the chain. Choosing a fast conveyancing solicitor is the first step towards improving the chance your home move will complete sooner, however there are numerous things you can also do personally to accelerate your conveyancing:

  • Secure your mortgage application early
  • Send specific enquiries to your solicitor quickly
  • Respond to requests for information quickly

If you are selling, some of these can be completed even before you accept an offer. This could easily cut a week or two off your transaction. If you are serious about completing faster you can instruct a conveyancing solicitor here, or call our team on 0845 643 5785.

Online South West England Conveyancing

Sellers and purchasers who have worked with high street conveyancing solicitors previously might think the discount fees advertised by a conveyancer that they found on Google indicates that poor communication is inevitable, or are suspiciously good.

The myth of online conveyancing is that there will always be downsides to selecting a cheaper online solicitor over a high street firm. In truth, there are locally-based but expensive, and there are low-cost, highly-recommended firms who market their services online.

Though some house buyers like the option of being able to meet their property lawyer face-to-face, it is not necessary. An attentive and pragmatic conveyancer should often move you faster than a lawyer you need to meet face-to-face.
