When buying a unique flat in a designated conservation area in Horwich. How do I find more details in respect of the standard of repair?

If I am buying a Horwich house close to a church constructed in the 12th Century, is it recommended to get a chancel search?


The result of a landmark case in 2003 confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church properties in the local area where chancel liability may apply include Holy Trinity, St Catherine and St Elizabeth.


We are intending to buy a chapel in the parish of Horwich. Will we need a chancel search?


The conveyancing lawyer should confirm that a chancel search is ordered, irrespective of the parish where the residence being bought is found. Although some parish councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on owners of lay rectorships, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will remain liability-free for new owners.


How do you calculate Stamp Duty Land Tax, what should we budget for a £353000 residential property?
