Your solicitor is likely to recommend ordering a chancel search. Though some Parochial Church Councils have decided to demand chancel repairs on new home-owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish, where chancel repair fees have not been previously paid, will remain liability-free for new owners. Therefore, your solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend suitable indemnity insurance, which is a disbursement passed on to you at cost.Q.
Yes, we do. Our solicitors, who are part of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme, frequently take instructions from bidders at auction. Our niche auction team of conveyancers have previously been instructed by numerous bidders at local and national property auctions. Experienced buyers know to appoint property conveyancing lawyer as fast as possible to allow enough time for an investigation of the auction legal papers in advance of the auction day arrives. Then, immediately after the auction date, your experienced lawyer is able to concentrate on finishing the conveyancing quickly inside a tight timeframe. Give our team of auction experts a call on 0800 038 6699 to discuss your auction needs.Q.
Your property's relevant band should be highlighted in the title report prepared by your conveyancing solicitor, along with information about the governing local authority.

Technically speaking, there is absolutely no legal argument why you can’t look after the majority of the legal and technical work yourself. That said, a solicitor performs a long list of tasks (e.g. stock transfer forms and dealing with requisition on os1), which are better done by someone with training and experience. Our expert team are waiting for your call on 0800 038 6699.Q.
The solicitors on our panel adopt a thoroughly take-charge plan of attack when conducting the legal process for movers in order to meet the clients’ needs. Our expert solicitors’ approach to conveyancing is different from other firms, because we always use cutting-edge, fast-response information systems. Critically, we always look after you with a firm prepared to exert pressure throughout the property chain, removing hurdles and issues where practical.
Both agents and mortgage-brokers will often refer a solicitor. However, such referrals need to be weighed up against all the alternatives, including online or local firms, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice for your needs. Call our team of conveyancing experts on 0800 038 6699 for your fixed-fee quote.Q.
Conveyancing searches are queries raised by your property lawyer on your behalf to satisfy the legalities regarding ownership and other points of legal interest. These searches do give much-needed information and context, but only relate to legal facets of the purchase. They will not present any data on the structural integrity of the building you are buying, for which you need a chartered surveyor.Conveyancing searches are queries raised by your property lawyer on your behalf to satisfy the legalities regarding ownership and other points of legal interest.

A crucial component in the legal due diligence process of purchasing a property involves the conveyancing lawyer conducting property conveyancing searches that set out details on the risk of flooding in Haywards Heath.
