Most importantly, buying faster is the key to instruct a proactive lawyer. Consider the following:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

Q.

Will our Rayleigh property lawyer report back to me about the cost of council tax on a Band A maisonette prior to exchanging contracts?

A property lawyer will speak to the relevant Castle Point local authority to discover the current council tax band and rates, which should be set out in the title report. The latest tax rates for properties in Rayleigh are published at the Castle Point council site. At the time of authoring, 11 October 2012, the different rates are:

  • Band A - £1,019.00
  • Band B - £1,188.00
  • Band C - £1,358.00
  • Band D - £1,528.00
  • Band E - £1,867.00
  • Band F - £2,207.00
  • Band G - £2,546.00
  • Band H - £3,056.00

Q.

I plan to purchase a converted chapel in Mucking. Will a chancel search be appropriate?

A.

The solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out, whichever parish in which the home being purchased is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on current owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will not continue to be so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

What amount of time does conveyancing to purchase a property generally take, according to your estimates? We need to move quickly.

A.

Generally speaking, the amount of time required to transfer a house is not wholly predictable, based on numerous aspects which can include if third parties fail to promptly answer queries. We strive to ensure every sale receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search when I am buying a apartment on the same road as rectory grounds in Rayleigh?

A.

Chancel repair liability can require some Rayleigh home owners to contribute towards upkeep of a local church. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Rayleigh properties is likely to exist. Your conveyancing solicitor can provide more details. Rayleigh church lands include Grovewood Church, Holy Trinity Church and St Michael's Church.

Q.

Will your Rayleigh lawyer do any property on the Essex Victorian mid terrace flat I am intending to buy?

A.

The common legal protocol will be to get Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental as well as any special local Rayleigh searches, which may include a Planning report.
