Should I list my property with more than one estate agent?
The choice is entirely up to you and your specific circumstances. Going with a sole agent is probably the cheapest option (although the reach to buyers is dependent on how many clients are on their books), while multiple agents will be more expensive (but will reach a broader client base).
If you’re looking for a quick sale or the market is rather sluggish, it makes sense to put your property on with a number of agents. If the market is buoyant, it makes more sense to place the property with a sole agent.
Whichever you choose, you should always check the terms and conditions so that you know what service you’re getting for your money and how much it will cost you once the home is sold. You should also understand if there are penalties should you decide to place the property with more or fewer agents later on during the agreement period.

Should we order a chancel search if I plan to buy in the parish of Bromley, near Clapham?
The conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is taken out, whichever parish in which the residence being purchased is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils have opted to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will remain liability-free for new owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
