We are buying a The Borough home with Direct Line Mortgages - is there anything we need to check?


Buyers should consider that a small number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater conveyancing costs for buyers if their preferred solicitor is unable to act both on their behalf, and for their lender. We will act on behalf of most UK mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.


I am buying a church rectory in Littleton. Will a chancel search be specified?


The solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish in which the home being purchased is located. In older areas of The Borough, chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
