Importantly, a fast conveyancing transaction is key is to use a proactive conveyancing solicitor. There are numerous tasks you as the buyer could do to get moving sooner, such as, encouraging your conveyancing solicitor to carry out searches promptly, answering any queries raised by your conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible and confirming your mortgage offer.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like sofas?

A.

Mainly, fixtures are permanently fixed to walls and other surfaces and fixtures are free-standing items, such as a dishwasher. To avoid misunderstandings, a fixtures and fittings form should be agreed, saving heartache once the sale is completed.

Q.

If I am purchasing in the parish of Wellingborough, are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancer should confirm that a chancel search is taken out, irrespective of the parish where the residence being bought is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils have decided to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not imposed liability will remain liability-free for new owners.

Q.

How soon should you instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

With few exceptions, the sooner the better. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm for a sale may mean that information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.
