Q.

A.

Instructing a experienced conveyancer is key a fast completion. When finding a suitable a conveyancer, you should ask yourself the following: Was there a delay delivering a quote? Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication? Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

The conventional legal protocol is to get Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental, and possibly area-specific searches for example Cheshire Brine Search.

Q.

If we are intending to purchase in the parish of Wallingford Holy Trinity, will we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a house in Newbury or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor instructed to handle the transaction might recommend that a chancel search is ordered. In Newbury's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Wallingford Holy Trinity, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

I am buying in Newbury, do we need conveyancing searches?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a standard set of questions requested by the purchaser's conveyancing lawyer with local and national authorities. These searches only deal with facets affecting the legal title.
