I am purchasing a barn conversion in Pennington. Is a chancel search needed?
A conveyancing solicitor could advise that a chancel search be taken out, regardless of the parish in which the residence being purchased is located. Although some church councils have decided to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not imposed liability will remain liability-free for new owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
What can be done about trees with TPOs if they are cutting out the light into the house?
Tree Preservation Orders (or TPOs) are legal protections for individual trees, which means you are prohibited from pruning, cutting or removing the plant without the formal consent of the local authority. There are certain caveats such as whether it is causing an immediate danger to life, but the local authority will still need to be informed.
As a homeowner, you have a number of rights, including Right to Light: that is, you should expect natural daylight to enter your property through windows without being blocked (again there may be caveats which will be unearthed in the conveyancing). If a tree with a TPO has grown so much that it is blocking out light, you can apply to the local authority for permission to prune the tree sufficiently to return your Right to Light. It becomes more complex if the tree in question is on a neighbour’s property, and you should discuss any resulting costs with them.
Homeward Legal's solicitors have years of experience in dealing with all sorts of legal issues including TPOs, providing you with practical guidance and help. We are best placed to help you with your move, so call our team on 0800 038 6699 today.
