Q.

I plan to purchase a barn conversion in the parish of Melbury Sampford with Melbury Osmond. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have opted to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Will the report on title prepared by the Ferndown conveyancing solicitor report on the rates of council tax on a Band B property prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

Your lawyer will approach the relevant East Dorset local council to discover the latest council tax charges which will then be set out in the conveyancer's title report.

Q.

When in the process do we need to speak to a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

The straightforward answer is, the faster you instruct the better, as there are a number of tasks which may begin straight away. Some groups suggest holding off instruction until an offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process to buy a £146k house, what do we need to arrange?

A.

Finding a proactive and experienced solicitor is the key to fast Ferndown conveyancing. When finding a suitable a solicitor, consider these questions: Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed. How soon will they order searches?

Q.

What will the Ferndown conveyancing lawyer do if the property we am buying is located in a local authority conservation area and has ugly windows installed?

A.

The local authority LLC1 searches carried out by your solicitor as part of the conveyancing will find out if the property is inside a designated conservation area and evidence of council approval for changes to the property will be supplied.Should no appropriate permissions be in evidence the solicitor will inform you of all options which can include purchasing an indemnity policy or seeking retrospective consent from East Dorset council.
