Will a property lawyer in Battlesbridge apply for any property conveyancing searches on the Essex period terraced flat I am intending to buy?


The common procedure will be to obtain the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and occasionally less common searches for example Official Search of Whole with Priority (OS1).


What can my searches cost?


The cost of searches will vary, depending on the particular searches ordered.


We plan to buy a church rectory in the parish of Langford. Will a chancel search be specified?

Your solicitor responsible for your move might recommend that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish in which the home being purchased is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not automatically be the case for future owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


I want to complete on the sale of a leasehold flat inside a month, are Homeward Legal very fast Battlesbridge solicitors ?

Our home moving lawyers will always communicate from the beginning to the end of the property chain and have invested in the latest case and work flow systems technology to exchange on your house move swiftly.


How can a property lawyer in Battlesbridge report back on the potential risk of possible flooding in Battlesbridge?


The lawyer applies for standard formal conveyancing searches, which include Battlesbridge flood risk area data. Also as an additional measure a Battlesbridge property lawyer may possibly propose a more involved (e.g. Landmark) specialist flood search.


Do we need to employ a law firm suggested by our estate agent?


The Cambridge agent will refer a solicitors firm, however, these referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as some agents choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.


Will we need a surveyor to check for defects affecting this property purchase in Battlesbridge?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors heavily advise that you order a home buyer survey. A wide range of concerns affect a property, such as severe weathering, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.
