Certain works call for local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions.

Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal impending roadworks that could affect a commercial site in Ilkeston?
Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Ilkeston will conduct a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers invest in investigating accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Ilkeston. The report sets out definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Ilkeston.
For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Ilkeston it is crucial to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

How does conveyancing in Ilkeston differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Ilkeston come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because builders in Ilkeston typically acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Ilkeston or who has acted in the same development.
