There is no argument why you should not conceivably take care of he majority of the legal and technical work without the help of a specialist solicitor in Mortimer.

Q.

We plan to purchase a house in the parish of Great Barrington. Is a chancel search specified?

A.

A lawyer could advise that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Mortimer, chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

A.

Your property solicitor will consult with the governing council to find out the latest council tax rates, which will then be detailed in the title report. Correct rates for Mortimer are listed at the council website.
