When buying with a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf.

We are buying a home in the parish of Kettlewell. Is a chancel search necessary?

Whichever Idle parish in which you are buying, a conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not imposed liability will continue to be free from liability, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

An agent will be able to pressure a law firm they refer a large volume of work to, and can therefore induce a slow solicitor to work faster. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.


Is contaminated land in Idle a concern for the majority of residences?
