Property owners in Burford may be subject to chancel repair liability. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Ecclesiastical properties in Burford where a chancel search may be appropriate include Asthall St Nicholas, St John the Baptist and St Mary.

Our team prepare legal packs for vendors and regularly work for buyers at auction. It is prudent to select a solicitors practice as early as possible so there is time for a title report of the auction legal pack before the day of the auction.
Subsequently, following the auction your conveyancing lawyer will be ready for completing the conveyancing in the limited time frame as usually required by the auction conditions.
