Q.

If I am intending to purchase near Arnside, in the parish of Kirkby Thorpe, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor instructed to handle the transaction may suggest a chancel search. In Arnside's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Your lawyer will make enquiries to find out whether the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the required consents.

Is the SDLT fee a fee or a disbursement?
