Q.

How is Weymouth contaminated land checked when buying a house?

Residential property is contaminated by a range of environmental factors, like proximity to landfill sites. An environmental search will give more information.

Should we order a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Stoke Wake?

A.

A solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a home 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.
