Q.

We are buying a barn conversion in the parish of Pimlico St Peter. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

Whichever Limehouse parish you are purchasing in, a conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past.

What are our options if we acquire a maisonette in a Tower Hamlets local authority designated conservation area ?

What can I do to defer paying for HMRC stamp duty?

The truth is however that a property solicitor carries out a huge array of actions ranging from chasing outstanding papers and identifying conservation area breaches which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified solicitor. Above all have a go conveyancers are taking risks without relevant cover that every solicitors practices are liable to be required to possess.
