Q.

Is contaminated land in Thornhill an issue?

A.

Thornhill property may have been contaminated by a range of natural and human-influenced issues, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a house is affected by contaminants in the region such as overhead transmission lines or proximity to scrap yards.

Q.

Skipton Building Society is going to be our mortgage lender, what do we need to know?

A.

Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal can act for all major lenders.

Q.

If we are purchasing next to a rectory built in the 1500s in Thornhill, is it necessary that we get a chancel search?

Property owners near to a church in the area are expected to fund repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Ecclesiastical properties in this area where chancel liability may apply include Mission Church, St Christopher and St Michael & All Angels.

Q.

How long may I allow for conveyancing require, on average?

A.

For most residential property, the time needed to sell or purchase a property is not wholly predictable, with reference to a number of factors. Our conveyancing solicitors work hard to ensure your sale or purchase receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

If we are purchasing near Thornhill, in the parish of Michaelston-super-Ely, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a building in Thornhill or elsewhere in the county, the property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Thornhill, chancel repair may be imposed on owners of a building where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

How much will our conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches will vary. They are disbursements.

Q.

We are concerned about council tax charges on a Thirties detached property in Thornhill, what are they?
