Handling the legal work by bypassing a property solicitor in Ammanford appears to be becoming possible when selling a house but would it actually be a money saving idea ?

A.

If you want to attempt this you can certainly undertake the conveyancing without Ammanford property lawyer.

Q.

I am purchasing a property in the parish of Llanfynydd. Will a chancel search be appropriate?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search. Through some parish councils have chosen to impose chancel repairs on owners, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will continue to be unaffected.
