I am buying a rectory in Bole. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

Your solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Do we need to make use of the firm of solicitors referred by the agent?

A.

The agent can influence one or more conveyancing firms they refer a large number of clients to, and can therefore persuade a slow solicitor to work faster. However, if they are paid a referral fee, there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.
