The outcome of Aston Cantlow (Parochial Church Council) v Wallbank in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced in England and Wales. As a consequence of a Parliamentary Act, interest over any affected land must have been registered by the councils. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further on the risk of chancel liability, and any options (such as indemnity insurance), that you might wish to take up. Church of England properties in the local area where chancel liability may apply include:
Your solicitor will investigate whether the property is located within a designated conservation area and if any alterations have the required consent. In the event that no appropriate permissions can be supplied, the solicitor will advise you of all the options, which may include obtaining cover from an indemnity insurance policy (in case the authority orders you to reverse the changes) or seeking retrospective consent from the appropriate local authority.Q.
Your mortgage lender will require legal work to be performed on their behalf to meet the terms and conditions of supplying you with a loan. Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater conveyancing costs for home-buyers if their chosen solicitor cannot act for the lender. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of all large lenders in the UK, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

From a legal standpoint, it’s perfectly possible to handle your own conveyancing without appointing a professional property lawyer. However, a conveyancing solicitor juggles a significant number of tasks (including chasing deeds and checking the lease), which require a qualified and experienced solicitor. In addition, your relative inexperience with the complexities of the law and conveyancing will inherently incur delays, which might jeopardise the entire transaction. Despite all that, solicitors’ firms are legally obligated to carry the applicable insurance cover in order to protect you in the event of negligence.Q.
It is a well-established fact that instructing a proactive and experienced solicitor as early as possible is crucial to speeding up the conveyancing transaction. Homeward Legal’s solicitors provide this as a standard service and use cutting-edge computer systems, integrated with various bodies such as the local authority, HMRC and the Land Registry, in order to push forward a fast transaction. Beyond that, there are various jobs that you, as the buyer, can also do, including:
The advice is for buyers to wait before agreeing a removals target until such time as you and the other side has confirmed the move-date that happens once contracts have exchanged. Once you are in a position to check out removals firms in the area, you might want to try:
Many agents in Warwick will have a referral arrangement with one or more solicitors’ firms in the area, whereby they refer conveyancing work to them. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may choose the firm which pays the largest referral fee, rather than the one that is most suitable for you.

Church of England properties in the local area where chancel liability may apply include St Leonard, Team Ministry St. Mary, Team Ministry St. Nicholas and Team Ministry St. Paul.Q.
Finding a communicative lawyer is the key to a faster move. There are numerous tasks you can also do, such as, answering any queries raised by the lawyer as soon as possible, pushing the lawyer to begin enquiries as soon as possible and confirming your mortgage offer.Q.
