I am purchasing a house and the solicitor has mentioned Chancel Repair to which the property may be liable because it falls into the area of such a church. He has recommended insurance. Is this really required for conveyancing in Burwell

Unless a prior acquisition of the property took place post 12 October 2013 you may expect solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Burwell to remain encouraging a chancel search and or chancel repair liability insurance.

Me and my brother purchased a semi-detached Georgian property in Burwell. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Britannia. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Burwell and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

How does conveyancing in Burwell differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Burwell come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because builders in Burwell typically buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Burwell or who has acted in the same development.

I was recommended by two or three local estate agents in Burwell to locate a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers ahead of alternative conveyancing organisations?

We refuse to make any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

Is there a difference between surveying and conveyancing in Burwell?

Conveyancing - in Burwell or anywhere in England and Wales - is the process of legally transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are buying and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for reducing the price down or asking the seller to remedy the defects prior to you move in.
