We will advocate that you put off arranging removals until after exchange of contracts because generally an absolute moving date will not have been set. Commonly removals companies add a rearrangement cost

Do we need a chancel search if we plan to purchase in the parish of Chislet?
The conveyancing solicitor might recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not automatically be the case for future owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
