Q.

For a fast completion on the purchase of a £450,000 property, how could we accelerate the transaction?

A.

Primarily, contacting a proactive and experienced property lawyer is essential to a fast conveyancing transaction. When finding a property lawyer, consider these points: Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction. Was there a delay delivering a quote? What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.

Q.

Is it necessary to get a chancel search? I am buying a Acklam home close to an ecclesiastical parish.

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Acklam Church council. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Churches in this area which may give rise to chancel liability include St John the Baptist.

Q.

At what point do I need to arrange a conveyancer to act on our sale?

A.

In the majority of situations, as soon as possible. The legal work can then begin very early in the process. Some groups advocate holding off instruction until the offer is accepted, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.
