Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Kirk Sandall, near Horsforth?

A.

Regardless of the Horsforth parish you are buying in, the solicitor could advise that a chancel search be ordered. In Horsforth's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on the current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without using a conveyancing solicitor in Horsforth is becoming possible when selling a flat. However, would it really be a smart move ?

A.

In theory, there is no reason why you should not complete the conveyancing on your own. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor in Horsforth juggles a huge array of tasks such as approving completion statements or ongoing communication with the other sides solicitors some of which need training.

AT any rate solicitors practices are obligated to be covered by acceptable cover that ultimately protects you in the event of oversights.

Q.

Is a Local Authority search a disbursement or fee?

A.

It may not be obvious whether an item on your quote is a disbursement or a fee. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.
