Which elements are important to ensure a fast conveyancing transaction?

Q.

If I am buying in New Eltham, do I need to get a chancel search?

A.

Property owners near to nearby church land must contribute towards the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. New Eltham church lands include All Saints.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Greenford?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer could recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the residence being purchased is found. Through some church councils have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on new owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will continue to be free from liability. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Will the fixtures and fittings form include items like built-in wardrobes?

A.

Property buyers are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity over what fixtures and fittings should be included. Conveyancing solicitors recommend a formal fixtures and fittings form to avoid later disagreements and will clarify precisely what is to be included.
