A solicitor to ascertain whether the property is within a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have essential consent from the Milton Keynes planning authority.

We are going to buy a property. Do we need property searches?

Do specialise the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Stony Stratford?


Our firm is able to act for buyers and sellers at auction. Often more complicated to convey buildings are sold at property auctions which tend to will want additional. Conveyancers therefore advocate auction buyers to appoint an experienced property lawyer well in advance of the auction day to allow sufficient time for a full report of the documents.

Is it recommended that we get a chancel liability search? I am buying close to a church constructed around the 16th Century in Stony Stratford.


Property owners near to older church buildings may be required to subsidise repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Stony Stratford must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Stony Stratford church lands include St Mary & St Giles.


We are on a limited budget - Will doing the conveyancing myself without the assistance of a Stony Stratford property solicitor save any money?


It is possible for you to do the legal work yourself.

The truth is however that a Stony Stratford property solicitor takes care of a significant number of tasks ranging from liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries and notifying all parties of exchange most of which need a skilled professional. Nevertheless firms and their solicitors are liable to be required to pay for acceptable indemnity insurance to insulate you in the event of failures made by the lawyer.
