We plan to purchase a converted chapel in Mortehoe. Is a chancel search compulsory?

A.

Whether you are buying a residence in Lynmouth or elsewhere in the county, the property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out. Through some church councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will remain liability-free for new owners.

Q.

Would ordering a property survey be sensible when we are buying a property, irrespective of its condition?

Q.

My agent has put forward a firm of solicitors that they have used before. Will it be cheaper to instruct this solicitor?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common practice way to find a solicitor, however, such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.
