Remediation of contaminated land in Shenstone is possible is some cases, although it can be expensive. Contact Sutton John Greenacres Ltd, Lawton Grange Cottage/Grange La, Shenstone, Lichfield, WS14 0QH for more detail.
Do we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Armitage?
Whether you are buying a house in Shenstone or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor instructed to handle the transaction could advise that a chancel search be ordered. In Shenstone's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a house where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
Should I accept an offer on my home if I haven’t found one to buy?
From your prospective buyer’s standpoint, they are not going to want to wait around for you to find somewhere to move to necessarily, meaning that they might drop out of the process to look for a property that is more readily available. However, you might want to have the discussion with your estate agent as to the best way to manage this as part of the process of putting your house on the market.
It’s not always going to be easy for everyone in the chain to have everything lined up from mortgage offers, sale price agreements, solicitors, surveys and so on. Therefore, you can be honest and tell your prospective buyer that, while you’re accepting the price, you haven’t completed your part in the chain; if they are unhappy with this, your other option is to consider a short-term rental or moving in with friends temporarily to protect the sale.
