Whether you are buying a property in Wheathampstead or elsewhere in the county, the lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Through some Parochial Church Councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on new owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will remain liability-free for new owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.Q.
Importantly, finding a proactive, diligent solicitor is essential to faster conveyancing. Additionally, there are various jobs you can also do, such as, requesting regular updates from your solicitor and keep the pressure on, promptly answering your solicitor's questions and clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements.Q.
If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, the faster you instruct the better.
