How long will it take my assigned conveyancer to conclude all of the conveyancing work on a terraced forties home?
Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from around a month and three months based on any number of factors like the speed of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or the speed of managing agents. Our highly solicitors are very focused on pushing transactions through you moving home in as short a time as we possibly can.
Should you get a chancel liability search? I am buying a house on the same street as a church in Abertridwr.
Property owners proximate to specific local church buildings are expected to contribute towards the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further.
Are the doctors/dentists/schools oversubscribed in the area I want to move to?
Although your conveyancing solicitor may have some personal knowledge of these critical factors, they are not part of the conveyancing process, so will not form part of the contract.
If aspects such as how likely you’ll get into a surgery or school are important to you, it is worth factoring this in at an early stage when you are researching the areas into which you want to move. You can also glean some facts from the estate agent representing properties where you want to move, too. You might also like to contact the surgeries or schools for further information.
