A Crowland conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. In older areas of Crowland, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on new owners of a house where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a huge number of roles from ranging from chasing any outstanding docs and registering the new title owner most of which need training.

Estate agent recommendations are a common way for home buyers to find a solicitor. These referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
