Q.

If I plan to purchase near Charterhouse, in the parish of Byfleet, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a residence in Charterhouse or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. Chancel repair can be imposed on current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.

Q.

Is there something we can do to bypass paying for stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

SDLT is generally payable on home purchases over £125,000. Stamp duty reduction should not be considered. These schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed . There have been several legitimate initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.
