The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Ambleside, chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

When buying with a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Recently, a number of lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater conveyancing costs for buyers if their chosen solicitor is unable to act both on their behalf, and for their lender. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act for most lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay the lender's costs.Q.
