I require conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (five years old) in Marple. The vast majority the appartments are already occupied. Do I need carry out the local searches as part of conveyancing in Marple?
You are opening yourself up to an unnecessary risk in not carrying out Marple conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying without a mortgage there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would absolutely advise in the strongest possible terms that your lawyer conducts them. Where timings and cost are top of your issues you should discuss with your lawyer about the options such as contingency insurance available to you
I am the only recipient of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Marple. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in August. I want to move. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in August. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The CML handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be affected by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation is principally there to identify subsales or the flipping of properties.
We were going to get a DIP from Yorkshire BS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Yorkshire BS recommend any Marple solicitors on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Marple solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Yorkshire BS through the process.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Marple lawyer having checked that they are on the TSB conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
TSB will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually TSB will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Marple surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
Do I need to take out insurance to address the risk of chancel repairs when purchasing a property in Marple?
Unless a previous acquisition of the house completed post 12 October 2013 you can expect lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Marple to continue to recommend a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.
Hoping to buy a property located in Marple and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Marple. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Marple area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

In my capacity as executor for the estate of my aunt I am disposing of a house in Swansea but I am based in Marple. My lawyer (based 235 kilometers from mehas requested that I sign a statutory declaration ahead of completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in Marple to witness this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you should not be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or qualified solicitor will do regardless of whether they are Marple based
