Q.

I am purchasing a barn conversion in Shackerstone. Will a chancel search be important?

A.

Your solicitor instructed to handle the transaction might recommend that a chancel search is taken out, whichever parish where the home being bought is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not be so in future, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Which particular property searches should the Anstey lawyer do when carrying out the conveyancing for a Anstey building?

What scrutiny regarding the uncertain risk of a flood in the Leicestershire area will my Anstey property lawyer advise us on?

Q.

Northern Rock will be our lender, what will I need to be aware of?

A.
