I plan to purchase a medieval barn conversion in the parish of North Poorton. Is a chancel search specified?

A.

Regardless of the Parkstone parish in which you are buying, the Parkstone conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Parkstone, chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a property where parish

councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

The internet has plenty of publications going into great depth on how to do DIY conveyancing for example House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing: How to Save Estate Agent and Solicitor Fees When Buying or Selling Property. Do we need to use a Parkstone property solicitor ?

A.

Theoretically there is absolutely no argument why a seller shouldn't embark on the legal and technical work on your own.

The truth is however that a lawyer in Parkstone is in charge of a large array of tasks ranging from applying for and interpreting office copies and identifying conservation area breaches which require a qualified solicitor. Nonetheless legal practices need to carry suitable professional indemnity insurance to insulate you in the event of omissions made by the lawyer.

The time taken to buy or sell a house does vary, affected by several issues affecting the property. With our solicitors, each client receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

What causes purchase conveyancing work to take weeks to complete? Isn't it a simple matter of filing paperwork?

A.

Conveyancing can be drawn out even in the best of circumstances. The reasons are beyond the solicitor's power, Homeward Legal, however, endeavour to minimise their impact wherever a difference can be made. Reasons for delay may include the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.

Q.

In about five weeks we are going to be moving from our terraced property on the outskirts of Parkstone to our next home in Lytchett Matravers , at what point to instruct a removals firm?

A.
