Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing in Longford?

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.

Should we make use of the property solicitor suggested by my estate agent?

A.

Your agent may recommend a conveyancing solicitor, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

If I plan to buy in the parish of Padbury, will we need a chancel search?

A.

The lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

How is Longford contaminated land checked when purchasing a house?

A.

Longford property could be contaminated by a broad range of natural causes, and factors like proximity to scrap yards will be detailed in an appropriate search. Contamination can be caused by local landfill sites, including Frampton Landfill Site, The Perryway, Gloucestershire, GL2 7PU.
