Promptly instructing a firm for a purchase allows your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).

Q.

Will you need to get a chancel search? I am purchasing a property on the same street as a rectory manor in Hither Green.

A.

Property owners neighbouring churches may be required to subsidise repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Terms used in a property's name, like 'abbey', may indicate chancel liability. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Church of England properties in this area include Saint Swithun's.

Q.

Would getting a house survey be advisable when we are purchasing property?

A.

It is advised that you instruct a property surveyor to undertake a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of concerns which can negatively affect a property, which will not be covered by the legal work, such as chimney defects.
