Q.

The estate agent we're using in Orpington has put forward the conveyancing which they often use. Do I need to use this firm?

A.

Your agent will usually refer a solicitors firm, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

A.

Gazumping is common across England and Wales and describes circumstances where a seller accepts a buyer's offer and later refuses it. Instead, they then go for a greater offer. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a conveyancing solicitor as early as possible.

Q.

If we are buying near Bishopston, in the parish of Rudford, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out, whichever parish in which the property being purchased is found. Although some church councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on new owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so. For property in the parish of Rudford, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
