How does sale conveyancing work need such a long time?


The Drybrook conveyancing process could be exposed to significant delays. Homeward Legal understand that these can cause considerable stress and seek to minimise their effect where it is possible to do so. Delays may include problems with arranging a mortgage.


I plan to purchase a home in Almondsbury. Is a chancel search required?


Regardless of the Drybrook parish you are buying in, the property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Through some parish councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on current owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not continue to be so.


Does your company handle the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Drybrook?


We are familiar with buyers at auction. Traditionally specialist houses are purchased in auctions which demand additional fact-finding before completion. We therefore strongly advise that purchasers instruct a suitable lawyer well in advance of the property auction to allow enough time for a detailed report of the lot.
