Q.

If I am intending to buy in the parish of West Langdon, will we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish where the building being bought is found. In older areas of Faversham, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a building where parish councils may have not done so in the past, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Please recommend how to hold off paying out for SDLT?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is due on purchases over £125,000. We strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme, because these schemes are highly expensive and unreliable.

Q.

Will I need a building survey for this property purchase?

A.

It is strongly suggested that most purchasers arrange a survey if purchasing in Faversham. There are a range of problems that can negatively affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, for example flat roof leaks or rotten roof timbers.

Q.

What does a Faversham property solicitor advise if the property is in a Canterbury council conservation area which has ill-suited removal of chimney stacks fitted?

A.

Local authority enquiries carried out by a solicitor during the legal process will establish whether the property is within a designated conservation area and any evidence of council approval for additions to the property will be supplied.

Q.

Our purchase is completing in April, what will be determined for stamp duty rates?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the valuation. Stamp duty will be £2430 on a £243000 house.*
