If we are intending to purchase near Blackburn, in the parish of Caton with Littledale, do we need a chancel search?


Regardless of the Blackburn parish in which you are purchasing, the conveyancer might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In older areas of Blackburn, chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a house where church councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.


Do fixtures and fittings include things like the boiler?


Chiefly, fixtures are fixed to the property and fixtures are free-standing. The need to clarify this is regularly overlooked, making it essential that the list of fixtures and fittings to be sold with the property is agreed early.
