There cannot possibly be a more scary and anxiety inducing activity than buying and selling your house and getting ready to move. A close family member can confirm! It seemed straight forward. Only three in the chain. A first time buyer of our family property, and the vendor from whom family were buying. What should have been very quick and painless ended up anything but. There were endless searches, every time it seemed that the contract was now ready for perusal, up would come another enquiry, be it parking rights, access over shared driveway, on the house at the top being moved up to, there were considerations over chancel repair indemnity insurance. Then there was the small matter of paying back the government ‘help to buy scheme’ which turned out to be more expensive all round. Getting the right financial advice before any action is taken in house conveyancing is absolutely critical.
