A solicitor instructed to handle the transaction might recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the house being bought is located. Although some parish councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on owners of affected property,

a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners.

Should I read about the conveyancing process as a buyer and seller of a home , Is it insensible to carry out the legal conveyancing process ourselves?
