Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Cowley?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Grove Park or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Through

some parish councils have opted to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not be so in future. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

I have a requirement for fast Grove Park solicitors - is that your solicitors?

A.

Q.

Q.

The owner has unfortunately installed artificial stone cladding on the maisonette which might possibly infringe Swaledale conservation area rules.

A.

Part of the legal process includes the ordering of searches of Lewisham local authority to find out conservation area status and the appropriate consent for alterations.

Q.

How much will the searches on average cost?

A.

Grove Park conveyancing searches ranges in cost, subject to the searches your lender requires. The most generally useful searches include a mining search and an environmental search.
