When buying with a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Over the last two years, some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them. For buyers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. We, however, are able to act for many CML-approved lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

What kind of additional enquiries in respect to the risk and history of a flood around Devon will the conveyancing solicitor in Bideford advise us on?

A.

Conveyancing searches are common pack of enquiries carried out on your behalf, including a drainage search. These will not give information on the physical condition of the property.

Q.

Will we need a building surveyor to investigate this Bideford house purchase?

A.

It is strongly suggested that all purchasers in Bideford book a house surveyor. There are many defects that will impact a property. These include poor ventilation and wet rot. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

If we are purchasing in the parish of Landcross, should we get a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not automatically be the case for future owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
