Will we need to get searches for chancel liability? I am buying a maisonette by a parson's close in Lyndhurst.
The Law Lords decision in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must subsidise church repairs. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including tithe documents. Church lands in this area include St Michael & All Angels.
Is a building survey a good idea when buying a house?
It is suggested that you order a house survey. It is a fact that there are many defects that affect a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation, which include ground movement.
The estate agent we are using in Lyndhurst has referred the solicitors firm whom they usually use. Must we use this solicitor?
Many estate agents will have a referral arrangement with solicitors whereby they refer work to them. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

A right of way on the property I’m buying is redundant, but how do I get it removed from the deeds and registry?
A right of way through the grounds of a property is probably an inheritance before other building in the vicinity occurred that has since made the passage through redundant.
But, while having the right of way registered with the deeds means that feasibly someone could insist that they use it (as their public right), but, if they can’t access where the right of way originally led, it makes it a pointless activity.
It’s so unlikely that anyone will want to do this that you have to weigh up the cost of the legal process to get the right of way officially removed against not proceeding. However, if you are at all worried, talk to your solicitor so that it can be investigated further as part of the conveyancing, at which point they can guide you on the appropriate action and the associated costs (this will be in addition to the standard fees for the conveyancing and your solicitor will advise of this additional cost).
Homeward Legal's solicitors provide transparent quotes, detailing what is included in the fees and disbursements and will help with estimates for additional legal work. So, now is the best time to get your conveyancing under way on 0800 038 6699.
