I plan to purchase a property in Ibstone. Is a chancel search compulsory?


Whether you are buying a property in Ickenham or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Through some parish councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no guarantee that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not continue to be so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


How do you work out stamp duty, and how much should it be on a £773000 home?

I have been reading about handling the legal side of home moving as a buyer and seller of a flat , Might it be sensible to do the all of the legal work on my own?


Theoretically speaking there is no reason at all why a buyer cant engage in the legal and technical work unaided. That said, a conveyancing solicitor carries out a large array of functions e.g. drafting contracts or the Land Registry formalities most of which require a qualified professional. Additionally legal firms are required to get professional indemnity insurance that ultimately protects you from any professional carelessness.

  • pushing the solicitor to begin enquiries as soon as possible
  • quickly completing and return any forms
  • ordering a property survey early in the transaction
