We are intending to buy a restored chapel in Heywood. Is a chancel search necessary?


A Heywood conveyancing solicitor could advise a chancel search, whichever parish where the property being bought is located. In Heywood's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


Are you set up to act quickly on the conveyancing of auction properties in Heywood?


Yes - The legal team are auction specialists and commonly carry out work for buyers at auction. It is crucial buyers at auction to choose a qualified lawyer as soon as possible to allow sufficient time for a thorough review of the legal documents well before the property auction.

Thereafter, following the day of bidding your lawyer is totally focused on finishing the conveyancing inside the reduced time frame as typically required .


Our lender will be Nationwide Building Society - what do we need to consider?


Traditionally, it was usually straightforward for solicitors to act for both a buyer and their lender. Buyers should be aware that a small number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them. For property purchasers, this can result in significantly greater conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal can act for all large lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay the lender's costs.
