Most importantly, contacting a proactive and experienced solicitor is essential to buying faster. When choosing a solicitor, consider these questions: Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact How soon will they order searches? Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?

Q.

We are buying a property in the parish of Natland. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

The solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish where the property being bought is found. Chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
