What kind of local checks regarding the potential risk of possible flooding at Lancashire will the conveyancing solicitor in Longridge be able to apply for?

A.

A more detailed conveyancing search (e.g Homecheck) might be suggested by a Longridge property solicitor if the results of the initial searches identify a flood risk.

Q.

If you are buying in Longridge near a church built in the 15th Century, do you recommend that we get a chancel search?

A.

In Longridge, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise upkeep of nearby church property. Some names or words such as 'priory' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Church lands in the local area include St Lawrence and St Paul.

Q.

What environmental concerns will impact land in Longridge. Will they be comprehensively investigated?

A.

Land in Longridge will be contaminated by a broad range of factors caused by man and by nature, like hazardous and regulated installations. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.

Q.

How many weeks does the conveyancing process need, on average?

A.

On average, the amount of time taken to transfer a residence will vary. This is dependent on potentially many issues which may affect the property, such as if the property is leasehold. We ensure the matter is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.
