I am buying a home in the parish of Acaster Malbis. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?
Whether you are buying a home in Bridlington or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer might recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Can I agree a sale price without involving an estate agent or solicitor?
This depends on whether you have signed up with an estate agent and what agreement is already in place. While it might seem unfair if you’ve found a buyer outside of the estate agency process and you’re expected to still pay the agent their fees on sale, you should be very careful about stepping outside the agreed terms and conditions since this is legally binding and you may face penalties as a result. Therefore, if you want to follow this course, it’s worth checking the details with a solicitor to ensure you’re following the letter of the law.
If you’re not with an agent, you can publicise your house details with a number of publications and online sites (some are free, others require a fee), but you’ll need to do all the legwork and administration. For a legal standpoint, you don’t need to appoint a solicitor to perform the conveyancing, but it would be an unwise option to pursue as you will probably have neither the training or experience in some its complexities, and you won’t have the protective indemnity insurance in the event of a problem arising with your work.
