What do we need to know about fixtures and fittings?
Purchasers are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity around which fixtures and fittings are included. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.
We have requested a conveyancing quote from you. Might we be billed any hidden charges after the move?

Are some of the conservation areas in Stockport are designated as at risk?

I am buying a house in Stockport. Is a chancel search specified?
Your conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants. For property in the parish of Stockport, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
