For the purchase, my mortgage lender, we have chosen Alliance and Leicester, what do I need to check?


When arranging a mortgage, a mortgage provider will need legal work to be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Purchasers should consider that, in some cases, lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. We, though, will act for many lenders.


How much would fee for our conveyancing searches total?


Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, depending on the searches required by your lender. These searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are charged at cost.


We plan to buy a home in the parish of Stockbury. Is a chancel search necessary?


Whichever Maidstone parish you are purchasing in, a conveyancer could recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair may be apportioned on owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.


We are buying a property where the seller looks to have fitted ugly stone cladding on the maisonette which we think might possibly infringe on the Boxley Abbey conservation area rules.


Your instructed property lawyer will always establish whether the property is affected by a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have the necessary consent from the local authority.

If no appropriate permissions be in evidence your solicitor will recommend the alternatives which include obtaining an indemnity insurance or obtaining retrospective permission.
