A.

The Chislehurst conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search.

A.

The result of a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must fund church repairs. A chancel search is used to check that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Your solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church lands in this area where chancel liability may apply include Christ Church, St Nicholas and The Annunciation.

Q.

Which elements assist with getting a fast conveyancing transaction?

Instructing a proactive, diligent conveyancer is crucial to a fast transaction. There are a number of tasks you as the buyer can do. These include:

  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can
