Q.

Is it recommended to get a chancel search? We are buying a house near church land in West Hill.

A.

Property owners in an area near nearby church property may be required to subsidise repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. A chancel search is employed to check whether such a liability exists. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Ecclesiastical properties in the local area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Michael the Archangel.

Q.

We are purchasing a West Hill property with The Mortgage Business - is there anything I need to consider?

A.

Traditionally, almost all conveyancing solicitors could act for the large mortgage lenders. Buyers in West Hill should know that a small number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, which may result in increased legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal will act for many mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

To complete on our £831,000 property purchase ASAP, how do we organise a fast exchange and completion in West Hill?
