Your conveyancing solicitor could advise a chancel search, whichever parish where the house being bought is located. In Carbis Bay's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Paul, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Is a survey necessary when we are purchasing a house?


It is strongly advised that all purchasers in Carbis Bay arrange a home surveyor to carry out a survey. A range problems will impact a property. These can include ground movement and cracks in walls, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.


What would my searches cost?


The cost of searches will vary appreciably, depending on the specific searches which have been ordered. These searches are paid to a third party.
