Will you need a chancel search if you are purchasing in Manselton by rectory grounds?

Owners of property in Manselton may be subject to chancel repair liability. Terms used in a property's name, like 'vicarage', may indicate chancel liability. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.

Q.

How can I stop being gazumped?

A.

This happens when a house seller accepts an offer, only to refuse it, opting for a better offer. Gazumping could occur even months into a sale. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of gazumping. Instructing your property solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.
