Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Stepney, near Dulwich?

A.

Whether you are buying a home in Dulwich or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing solicitor could advise that a chancel search is taken out. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have taken the decision to impose chancel repairs on the owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will continue to be free from liability, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

In simple terms, as soon as possible, as there are a number of tasks which may be performed very early in the process. Early instruction of a firm to act on your Dulwich sale or purchase can reduce any chance of the other side pulling out.

Q.

Would getting a Homebuyer Report be necessary if we are purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition?
