Q.

What length of time does it take my designated property solicitor to accomplish all of the legal process on a terraced home we are purchasing?

The legal process can take anywhere between 1 month and three months, which can be affected by any number of things for example the speed of the sellers lawyer, or whether the property is freehold or leasehold.

Q.

The normal conveyancing procedure will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search and occasionally less common searches e.g. a Subsidence.

Q.

The agent has put forward a law firm. Do I need to instruct this solicitor?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often refer a solicitor, however, such referrals should be considered carefully, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.

A qualified lawyer will conduct environmental searches that should include Cowes flood risk area data.

Q.

We are purchasing a barn conversion in the parish of Cowes. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have decided to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not imposed liability will continue to be free from liability. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
