Q.

Our team are familiar with local and national auctions and commonly take instructions from buyers and sellers at auction. We invariably advocate buyers to decide on a lawyer in advance of the property auction date to allow adequate time for a review.

Post auction day itself your appointed lawyer is totally prepared for finishing the purchase within a as tight time frame as conventionally required by the terms if sale.

An agent will push a law firm to handle your conveyancing. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

If I am buying near Knotty Ash, in the parish of Liverpool St Luke, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Knotty Ash or elsewhere in the county, the property solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not be so in future. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
