How long on average does it take the conveyancer to exchange all of the legal work for an apartment in a forties home we want to buy in Bovey Tracey?


Completion can take anywhere from 3 weeks and twelve weeks, which can be affected by a number of factors e.g. the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or re-negotiations following a survey.

If we are buying in the parish of Huish, will we need a chancel search?


Your solicitor might recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the building being bought is found. In older areas of Bovey Tracey, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
