Q.

Would acquiring a Homebuyer Report be advisable when we are purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age, in Goodrich?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise that purchasers order an inspection when you plan to buy in Goodrich. It is a fact that there are a range of defects that can negatively affect a property, for example settlement or cracked roof tiles, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

For a fast completion on the purchase of a £333,000 house, what can we do to accelerate our transaction?

A.

Essential to a faster move is to instruct a proactive lawyer. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

Q.

Are the many conservation areas in Goodrich likely to affect us?

A.

The areas near or within Goodrich will include a range of areas of historical merit designated as conservation areas. The local authority will offer more information about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

We plan to buy a chapel in Weston Beggard. Is a chancel search specified?

A.

The property solicitor could advise a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the property being bought is found. In older areas of Goodrich, chancel repair may be imposed on new owners of a property where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
