Q.

Is it advisable that I get a chancel search? We are purchasing in Longford.

A.

The outcome of a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must contribute towards the cost of church repairs. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Longford Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Longford church lands which may give rise to chancel liability include St Chad and St. Thomas.

Q.

I am planning to buy a new build property, do we need searches?

Conveyancing searches are a commonly-used set of questions carried out on behalf of the purchaser. These searches provide much needed information, however they only relate to legal-related matters.

Q.

How many weeks may conveyancing legal work generally take, in your opinion? We have a buyer ready.

For the majority of property purchasers, the amount of time taken to sell or purchase a house can vary, affected by a handful of concerns which can include if the property being bought or sold is leasehold. Our conveyancers work hard to ensure every sale receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

Is vanadium found to affect Longford soil?

A.

Restrictions exist to stop future soil contamination, decades after exposure the effect of some contaminants can be felt. Data on many contaminants, such as herbicides, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Our lender will be the Royal Bank of Scotland, is there anything we need to check?

A.

Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly greater legal costs. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act on behalf of the majority of mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

Is a building survey necessary if we are purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age?

A.
