Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Clerkenwell St Mark, near Carshalton?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is found. In older areas of Carshalton, chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past.

Q.

What can contaminate land in Carshalton?

A.

A broad range of contaminants may spoil property, such as sand or clay quarries. An environmental search can provide much more clarity.

Q.

What causes the sale conveyancing process in Carshalton to take such a long time? Should we be worried?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property can experience delays. We understand how unnecessarily stressful these delays can be and aim to reduce their consequences if it can be achieved by pushing all parties involved. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as waiting for a mortgage offer.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search? We are purchasing a Carshalton house by a 14th Century vicarage.

A.

The Law Lords decision in a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must fund church repairs. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including the Title Register database. Carshalton Church of England properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include All Saints and Beeches, The Good Shepherd.

Q.

Is a house survey necessary when purchasing a house?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommend that property purchasers arrange a RICS surveyor. There are a range of defects that can affect a property. These can include wet rot.
