- Who maintains the roadway and footpath outside my front door?
- Are the trees in the back garden protected by a Tree Preservation Order?
- Is the property a Listed Building?
- Are there any financial charges/debts for which I will become liable?
- Are there any proposals to construct a new road or railway nearby?
- Will the Council be introducing traffic calming, road restrictions or even residents' parking?
- Is any extension built over a sewer and does it have building regulation consent?
- Is there a public footpath abutting or crossing the property/land?
