Do you recommend that we get a chancel liability search? We are buying close to a priory in Emersons Green.

A.

The outcome of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced.

This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search.

Q.

What do fixtures and fittings include?

A.

Buyers in Emersons Green will often be frustrated with the lack of formality around which fixtures and fittings should be included in a purchase. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.
