We plan to buy a property in the parish of Cilau Aeron. Is a chancel search specified?
Whichever Llanbrynmair parish in which you are buying, a conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. Although some church councils have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not be so in future. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
Is a contract race fee a disbursement or fee?
Each fee and disbursement should be identified on a conveyancing quote. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, but some solicitors do charge extra for this.
What are searches, and how do they differ from a survey?
Searches are a set of enquiries carried out by your surveyor to various authorities such as the local council, HM Land Registry, etc., and focuses on the impact of the local area on your potential enjoyment of living at the property, while a survey (a HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey) is focused on the structural integrity of the home and its permanent outbuildings and constructions.
While each may throw up similar issues (such as missing planning consents or boundary issues), they are very different and achieve very different purposes.
Our solicitors at Homeward Legal are willing and happy to explain anything you don't understand in the conveyancing, because you need to know what you're getting for our competitively-priced fixed fee. Call our team on 0800 038 6699.
