If we plan to buy in the parish of Herbrandston, will we need a chancel search?
The property solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not be so in future. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
How much can conveyancing searches be?
With Homeward Legal, clients are charged no more than £249 for a standard search bundle. They are disbursements paid to a third party, and are charged 'at cost'.
What do I provide to the solicitor on my house sale?
The list of documents required is quite simple, but will be required at different stages of the process (but ideally any forms should be completed and returned on the day of receipt and preferably delivered by hand or email).
- Proof of id
- Title deeds (if you have them; they might be lodged with the solicitor who handled the purchase of the property you are selling, or the mortgage company)
- Fixtures and Fittings Form (TA10)
- Property Information Form (TA6) – information on boundaries, disputes and complaints with neighbours, notices and proposals, alterations and planning consents, building regulations, electricity and gas certificates, guarantees and warranties, insurance, environmental matters affecting the property, rights and informal arrangements, parking, other charges, services, connection to utilities and services, and transaction information
- Copies of documents referenced in the PIF
- Leasehold or shared freehold documents
- Management Information Pack
- Energy Performance Certificate
Providing all this documentation as quickly as possible, as well as responding to arising questions throughout the conveyancing within a couple of hours will help to speed the conclusion of your transaction up considerably.
