Q.

If I plan to buy in the parish of Isleworth, should we get a chancel search?

Regardless of the Bellingham parish you are buying in, the solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a home where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Bookshops and the web both have abundant useful resources giving details on by passing the solicitor. In which case, do I need to use a lawyer in Bellingham ?

A.

On paper there is no reason why a seller should not handle the bulk of the conveyancing yourself. In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor carries out a huge number of assignments such as chasing notices/share certificates and identifying the most appropriate searches many of which need a qualified solicitor. Nonetheless legal practices are obligated to carry insurance cover to shield you from any failures made by the lawyer.

Q.

Do I need to get a homebuyer report?

A.

It is advised that the majority of purchasers in Bellingham book a property survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of problems that affect a property, including subsidence. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

What will charges for the searches be?

A.

Searches range in cost. Informative but less frequently ordered extra searches include a search of the Index Map.

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in Bellingham?

A.

These areas pinpoint areas of architectural or historic interest. Your conveyancing lawyer will be able to offer more information, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Bellingham.
