Q.

Do we need to get a chancel search? We are purchasing a Chelsea property on the same street as a 14th Century 'parson's close'.

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Chelsea Church council. Several sources are used to determine liability in Chelsea, including maps of Chelsea's parish boundaries. Chelsea ecclesiastical properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Andrew, St John, Worlds End, St Andrew and Holy Trinity Sloane Square.

Q.

Can you recommend how we avoid paying for SDLT?

A.

SDLT is usually payable for houses over £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation should be treated with extreme caution. Such schemes are often uneconomical and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

What do we need to be aware of if we invest in a detached house in a Kensington and Chelsea planning authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the property legal involves procurement of searches of the local authority to determine conservation area status and the appropriate consent for modifications. .

Q.

Of large Chelsea lenders, which firms are on your panel?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership have solicitors who have experience working with all the major lenders providing financing to Chelsea buyers. Chelsea lenders and mortgage specialists include Quick Loans, 21/21/Chelsea Park Gardens, London, SW3 6AF.

Q.

If I am intending to purchase in the parish of Edmonton, are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancer may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. In Chelsea's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so.
