Is there a checklist for buyers or sellers helping to decide what’s most important?
The process of buying and selling is a complex one, so it’s helpful for your research to have checklists to ensure nothing is forgotten. There are several online resources with checklists for individual aspects of the moving process, including what to consider as a first-time buyer, help to buy schemes, removals, speeding up conveyancing and so on.
When it comes to deciding what you want for your new home to help you narrow down the choice of locations and types of property available, this is largely down to personal choice, so a standardised checklist might limit your requirements. You can talk to an estate agent about what you want as they will have the experience to narrow down your options. However, you need to consider the size of the property (number of rooms, bathroom facilities, bedrooms, etc.), size of garden, proximity to public transport links, noise, entertainment options (e.g. cinema, pub, eateries, etc.), access to off-road parking, schools, speed of broadband, and so on. Consider making a list of what the property must have and an associated wish list so that likely compromises can be made.
Should I make use of the law firm suggested by my estate agent in Glyn Ceiriog?
The Glyn Ceiriog agent will often endorse a conveyancing firm, however, these referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.
If we are intending to purchase in the parish of Llanfihangel-Glyn-Myfyr, will we need a chancel search?
The solicitor could advise a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the home being purchased is located. Chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
