Q.

Natwest is going to be our lender - what do we need to know?

A.

Q.

How early do you need to get a solicitor to act on our purchase?

The straightforward answer is, the earlier, the better. The legal work can then start very early in the process. 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.

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

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.

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.
