Q.

We are intending to buy a converted investment flat in the boundary of Corby conservation area, where can I uncover data in relation to the standard of repair?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have conducted a survey and created a list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas. Local conservation areas are nominated by Corby who are responsible for things like paths and footpaths to the obstruction of ugly parking meters.

Q.

How do I guard against getting gazumped?

A.

Gazumping happens when a buyer's offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the property seller, in favour of a greater offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts,

there is a chance of being gazumped. Instructing a fast, efficient solicitor early to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.

Q.

Will I need a house survey?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors strongly advise that all purchasers book a RICS survey if purchasing in Corby. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of defects which can affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, which include chimney defects.

Q.

If we plan to buy in the parish of Fotheringhay, should we get a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. Chancel repair may be imposed on new owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants. For property in the parish of Fotheringhay, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

We have a found a property to buy. How do we organise a fast completion?

A.

As is often argued, instructing a proactive, diligent solicitor is key a fast conveyancing transaction. There are, in addition, a number of things you, as the purchaser, could do. These include:

  • keeping in regular contact with your solicitor
  • promptly answering your solicitor's questions (by email if possible)
  • confirming your mortgage offer
