In older areas of Didcot, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Oxford St Thomas the Martyr, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Searches range in cost, depending on the particular searches ordered. The most frequently ordered searches include a local authority search and a drainage search.Q.
Conservation areas preserve areas of historical merit. You may wish to contact the council if you have specific questions, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.Q.
