Q.

I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Wheathampstead. How do we get a quote?

Q.

If we are purchasing near Wheathampstead, in the parish of Wigginton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

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.
