Q.

We are intending to purchase a barn conversion in Godstone. Is a chancel search needed?

Your conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the home being bought is located. In older areas of Esher, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

As a result of the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began we are questioning whether property conveyancing searches might not be sufficient?

A.

Your Esher conveyancing solicitor will include rigorous flood searches (Landmark search) if the standard searches determine a significant risk.
