Do we need a chancel search? We are purchasing a Failsworth home on the same street as an ecclesiastical parish.
Chancel repair liability can require some property owners to contribute towards the cost of repairs to older church buildings. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Failsworth properties is likely to exist. Your conveyancing lawyer will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church lands in the area where a chancel search may be necessary include Holy Trinity, St John and The Holy Family.
Would ordering a survey be a good idea if we are purchasing any property in Failsworth?
It is recommended that purchasers in Failsworth arrange a property surveyor to undertake a survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of defects which affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on. These include rotten roof timbers and cavity wall tie failure.
When should I book a removals firm?
It’s very tempting to get wrapped in the excitement of moving home and wanting to get everything sorted out and in the diary. But, if you book a removals firm too early, prior to the exchange of contracts (when the date and time of completion is legally set), you risk the possibility that the date might change, thereby having to pay a fee to the removals firm to change the plans.
There is nothing stopping you in contacting a selection of firms to get a quote for removal and to negotiate the possibility of pencilling a date in but ensure you obtain agreement that this is subject to change and confirmation.

Is there a benefit to going to auction over a standard estate agent sale?
The majority of homes sold via an estate agent will be in a reasonable condition and usually modernised, whereas auction properties will often require a lot of modernisation or structural work before it can be lived in. That’s not to say you can’t use either for your sale, of course, irrespective of the state of the property.
Whichever option you choose, you should line up a focused, proactive solicitor on a fixed-fee agreement protected by a ‘No Completion, No Fee’ guarantee. You should appoint them as early as possible, too, so that the conveyancing work can start immediately – this is particularly important for auctions, as there is usually a four-week completion stipulation on its sale.
