Enquiries of Local Authorities & Water Companies (6ed)
As an essential part of the conveyancing process, the purchaser of domestic, agricultural, commercial or industrial property or land carries out a search at the local authority offices to discover if there are any planning; environmental health; highways or water restrictions appertaining to the property to be purchased.
This popular work gives a clear and concise commentary on the new Forms Con29 and Con29O and on the Water and Drainage Enquiries (Con29DW) currently in use. Now for the first time Form Con 29 has enquiries relating to surface water drainage schemes, heritage partnership agreements, flood and coastal erosion risk management, community infrastructure levy, assets of community value, flood consents and land drainage consents.
The 6th edition of this book examines each enquiry in turn, and sets out the relevant and up-to-date legal position, with sources and references, in non-technical jargon. The authors then provide a summary of the implications of any reply by the local authority or water company concerned, positive or negative, so that a prospective purchaser can make a balanced decision as to whether or not to proceed with the purchase.
For this edition, occasioned by the Law Society’s issue of the new Forms Con 29 on 4 July this year, Keith is joined by Ken Miles, Head of Legal Services for North Devon District Council. Ken gives a new, modern and practical perspective on the wide-ranging implications of the legal provisions which cover a great deal of the business of local government services today.
Enquiries of Local Authorities and Water Companiesprovides an invaluable guide to the conveyancing practitioner, the local land charges officer and to the estate agent.
