I am intending to purchase a residence in Ystradgynlais. Is a chancel search needed?
Your property solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish in which the property being purchased is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will remain liability-free for new owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Technically speaking there are no reasons why a home mover cannot complete the legal work on your own. In reality however, a solicitor is familiar with a huge number of actions such as checking contracts and verifying identities of transacting parties many of which require training. Nonetheless solicitors are required by the SRA to be covered by indemnity insurance that ultimately protects you from any professional carelessness.
Should I accept an offer on my home if I haven’t found one to buy?
From your prospective buyer’s standpoint, they are not going to want to wait around for you to find somewhere to move to necessarily, meaning that they might drop out of the process to look for a property that is more readily available. However, you might want to have the discussion with your estate agent as to the best way to manage this as part of the process of putting your house on the market.
It’s not always going to be easy for everyone in the chain to have everything lined up from mortgage offers, sale price agreements, solicitors, surveys and so on. Therefore, you can be honest and tell your prospective buyer that, while you’re accepting the price, you haven’t completed your part in the chain; if they are unhappy with this, your other option is to consider a short-term rental or moving in with friends temporarily to protect the sale.
With our experienced solicitors at low, fixed-fee quotes with 'No Completion, No Fee' protection, Homeward Legal is in the best position to look after your conveyancing. Call us now on 0800 038 6699 to get started.
Do I have to be present at viewings?
No, you don’t. It used to be the case that estate agencies were happy to leave the homeowner to show prospective buyers around. However, this has now been dispensed with because they won’t necessarily have the property skills and experience of dealing with and selling to a buyer. Therefore, the preference is usually that you should not be present in the home at all, although this can obviously be difficult with infirmity, working from home, and childcare.
The best option is to discuss this with the estate agent when you appoint them, so that you are aware of their expectations for each viewing, and they will be able to work around you if you have to be present in the home. Whether you are present or not, you should still take care not to be too messy and tidy up as much as possible prior to the viewing appointment, so that good impressions are maintained.
Our fixed fees and the 'No Completion, No Fee' guarantee alongside our results-focused solicitors mean that Homeward Legal is your best choice for the conveyancing. Find out more on 0800 038 6699.
