Do your lawyers advise on the conveyancing for property auction properties in Saffron Walden?

Yes - Our firm do frequently take instructions from auction buyers and sellers. We tend to advocate buyers at auction to appoint a CQS conveyancing solicitor in advance of the auction for a review of the legal pack.

Immediately following the actual auction, the lawyer is focused on conclude the legal work in under 28 days as usually required by the terms of sale.

Q.

Do you need searches for chancel liability if we are buying a apartment near a glebe in Saffron Walden?

The outcome of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land in Saffron Walden must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Saffron Walden ecclesiastical properties which may give rise to chancel liability include Little Sampford St Mary the Virgin, Radwinter St Mary the Virgin, Great Sampford St Michael and St Mary the Virgin.

Which parts of Saffron Walden are protected by a conservation area?

A.

These areas classify areas of historical merit. A solicitor will discuss what specific restrictions are in place and offer more information for conservation areas in Saffron Walden.

Q.

We are buying a house in Little Shelford. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is found. In Saffron Walden's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so.

Q.

I have found an abundance of very helpful books on the subject of DIY conveyancing. Do I need to instruct a Saffron Walden property solicitor for my home move?

A.

Technically there are absolutely no arguments why you cant conduct your own conveyancing on your own. However, a solicitor in Saffron Walden is familiar with a large number of tasks including drafting contracts or checking that the contract package is in order most of which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified solicitor.

AT any rate legal firms are required to obtain sufficient cover that ultimately protects you in the event of failures.
