Q.

I am buying a property in the parish of St Botolph without Aldersgate. Is a chancel search needed?

A.

Your solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

The internet is full of a growing number books giving details on by passing the solicitor e.g. House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing: How to Save Estate Agent and Solicitor Fees When Buying or Selling Property by Joseph Bradshaw and Georgia Bedworth. In which case, do I have to use Brentford property solicitor ?
