A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Hinton St George which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for maintenance of local churches. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Hinton St George churches which may give rise to chancel liability include St George.

Should the house's form for fixtures and fittings include items such as curtain rails?

New owners are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity over which fixtures and fittings should be included in a purchase. Often, this issue is not considered, making it essential that the list of fixtures and fittings to be sold with the property is agreed early.
