Q.

If I am buying a Horwich house close to a church constructed in the 12th Century, is it recommended to get a chancel search?

A.

The result of a landmark case in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church properties in the local area where chancel liability may apply include Holy Trinity, St Catherine and St Elizabeth.

Q.

Having heard about the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England I am wondering if flood searches won't be thorough enough?

A.

Property conveyancing searches handled by a conveyancing solicitor in Horwich should include the far more informative search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are worried it may be worth trying to contact a close neighbour.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for the majority of properties in Horwich?

A.

A range of contaminants may lessen the desirability Horwich property. Issues like existing and proposed overhead electricity cables should be considered as part of the appropriate search.

Q.

We have found a buyer and have a quote from you. Could we have to pay any hidden charges?

A.

No. We never hide any hidden extra fees regardless of circumstances. Know that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.
