Will you need a chancel search? We are buying a property in Aberdovey.
The result of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Your solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability.

Do you recommend your solicitors to deal with the conveyancing of property auction properties in Aberdovey?
Our recommended conveyancing solicitors often do the legal work for buyers at auction. Conveyancers invariably suggest bidders to formally appoint an affordable solicitor well before the auction to allow enough time for a thorough review. Immediately following the auction day the conveyancing solicitor is totally focused on finishing the purchase inside 28 days as required .
How much would the conveyancing searches cost?
The cost of conveyancing searches will vary, depending on the searches required. Conveyancing searches are disbursements paid to a third party.
If I want to build an extension or do other works once I move in, can I get a builder to visit to give me a quote?
There is nothing stopping you trying to organise this, so long as you set a date and time that’s acceptable to the vendor (or via their estate agent if they are unable to be there) and try to establish how long the process will take, so that this can be booked in.
This becomes particularly critical following a surveyor’s inspection where remedial works are identified and recommended. You can use the quote from the builder as a renegotiation tool on the asking price, if the work required is going to be particularly costly. If you decide to go down this route, it must be done before exchange of contracts (where you’re committing to the sale price) and you should inform your solicitor if you’ve had private discussions and agreements with the vendor over price for inclusion in the terms of the contract.
