Q.

Should I get a chancel search if we are buying in Streatham Vale on the same road as a church?

A.

Chancel liability can require some residential property owners to cover the cost of repairs to churches. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance.

Q.

What length of time can the conveyancing process usually take? We have a buyer ready.

A.

On average, the amount of time required to transfer a residence does vary. This is affected by a number of aspects which can include whether a mortgage lender requires particular searches. With Homeward Legal's Streatham Vale property experts, each client is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.

Q.

How can I stop gazumping?

A.

This arises when a lower offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the seller, choosing instead another buyer's offer. The chance of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a solicitor as soon as you can.

Q.

We are intending to buy a barn conversion in Cowley. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Streatham Vale parish you are buying in, a conveyancing solicitor might recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.
