Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Barwick in Elmet, near Shipley?

A.

A solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish in which the property being purchased is found. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on owners of a property where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

When in the process do I need to instruct a conveyancer in Shipley?

A.

The straightforward answer is, the earlier, the better, as the legal work can start very early in the process. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor early for a purchase means that you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.
