Q.

How early should you instruct a solicitor in Charterhouse?

A.

The short answer is, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as the legal work can begin very early in

the process. Instructing your solicitor sooner for a purchase enables your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.

Q.

If I plan to purchase near Charterhouse, in the parish of Byfleet, do we need a chancel search?

Whether you are buying a residence in Charterhouse or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. Chancel repair can be imposed on current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.

Q.

I am buying in Charterhouse. Are there any conservation areas in the area?

A.

Areas deemed to be of special architectural or historic interest, such as 19th century suburbs, will be designated as conservation areas. Your property solicitor will advise further and confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

Q.

Will we need a chancel liability search if I am purchasing a Charterhouse flat by parish land?

A.

The result of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary.
