Q.

We need to find a company that offers cheap conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms promote cheap conveyancing, but extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Additional fees which are listed in the small print ought to be reasonable.

Q.

Will you need a chancel search when I am purchasing in Perranporth by a church constructed in the 1700s?

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Perranporth Church council. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Perranporth Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Perranporth Church of England properties where a chancel search may be necessary include St Michael Mission Church.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for most homes in Perranporth?

A.

Land could be contaminated by a wide range of natural causes, like masts or pylons or pollution incidents. An environmental search should offer more information.

Q.

The estate agent has named the property lawyer whom they usually use. Will it be more cost-effective to use them?

A.

An agent will recommend a solicitor. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

We plan to purchase a barn conversion in the parish of Lamorran. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will continue to be free from liability, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Perranporth?

A.

Perranporth is located in Cornwall Council, County Hall, Treyew Road, Truro, TR1 3AY, contact: 0300 1234 100

Q.

Environmental searches are standard procedure for home buyers but when one considers recent climactic events such as the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they actually good enough to advise on sufficient information about the Perranporth flood risk area?

A.

Environmental searches applied for by your conveyancer in Perranporth should include a far more rigorous Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.

Property purchasers sometimes also converse with a neighbour of the property for that further peace of mind.

Q.

Will I need a building survey?

A.

We firmly recommend that Perranporth buyers instruct a house surveyor to carry out a survey when you intend to buy in Perranporth. Many defects have a negative impact on a property. These include unsafe chimney circulation.
