Q.

We are buying a property where the seller has unfortunately installed doors on the home in Melton Mowbray which I think might possibly contravene conservation area criteria

A.

The conveyancing solicitor will always ascertain if your new home is within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have the necessary consents from the local authority. In the event that no authority consents be supplied, your conveyancing solicitor will inform you of the best alternative which may include buying an indemnity policy or getting retrospective approval from the appropriate local authority.

Q.

For the purchase, my mortgage lender, we have chosen Allied Irish Bank, is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

Prior to recent changes, almost all solicitors could perform legal work for both buyers and mortgage lenders. Some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. We can act on behalf of most mortgage lenders.

Q.

If I plan to buy in the parish of Sproxton, will we need a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor may suggest a chancel search, whichever parish where the home being bought is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have determined to exact chancel repairs on 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 not automatically be the case for future owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
