Flood risk searches may be all well and good but when one considers recent climactic events such as the flooding in 2012 are they sufficient to see sufficient information about the local Dolgellau flood risk?

Environmental searches carried out by the Dolgellau conveyancing solicitor will also include a more thorough flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

Regardless of the Dolgellau parish in which you are buying, the lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. In Dolgellau's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


Do I need to get a chancel search? We are buying in Dolgellau.


Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Dolgellau property likely to be affected. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Dolgellau properties is likely to exist. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary.
