Finding a communicative conveyancing solicitor is crucial to a fast completion. There are numerous tasks you as the buyer can do, such as, quickly answering your conveyancing solicitor's questions, calling or emailing the conveyancing solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays and if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Hardwick?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is ordered, regardless of the parish where the property being bought is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have opted to impose chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will remain liability-free for new owners.
