Is it necessary that we get a chancel search? I am buying a apartment on the same street as a parsonage in Caldicot.


As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Caldicot which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for repairs to an old church building. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Caldicot must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search.


My partner and I are interested in purchasing a building in Caldicot. How do I confirm that the building is in a designated conservation area?


Areas deemed to be of special architectural or historic interest, such as fishing villages, will be defined as areas of conservation. Living in a conservation area can mean better maintained homes and gardens, but the restrictions adds to upkeep costs. A solicitor will address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.


When should we instruct a conveyancing solicitor to handle our purchase?


Simply, the faster you instruct the better. Prompt instruction of a firm to act for you on your Caldicot transaction can reduce the likelihood of the sale or purchase falling though.


My mortgage lender is Precise Mortgages, is there anything I need to check?


Over the last two years, some lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal will act for most lenders.


The estate agent we are using in Tidworth has named the conveyancing solicitor whom they usually use. Is it advisable to use this firm?


An agent in Tidworth will endorse a solicitor. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
