Q.

Should you get a chancel search? I am buying a property close by parish grounds in Ickenham.

Property owners in a neighbourhood near a medieval church may be required to pay for repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Ickenham properties is likely to exist. Church of England properties in the local area include St Giles.

Q.

What do we need to know if we buy a location] house within a Hillingdon planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of conveyancing includes procurement of searches of Hillingdon local authority to check conservation area status and the existence of permission for alterations. If no appropriate consents be available, your Ickenham conveyancing solicitor will recommend the options which can include seeking cover from an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective approval.

Q.

Does your company manage the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Ickenham?

A.

Our firm is able to work with sellers at auction. Typically unusually constructed lots e. g. property that cannot be insured, are purchased in auctions and these need deeper due diligence by the lawyer. Conveyancers therefore advocate that bidders instruct a SRA regulated lawyer well before the property auction for a detailed investigation of the legal documents. Subsequently, following the date of the auction your conveyancing lawyer will be able to concentrate on finishing the legal side of things inside 28 days as conventionally required .

Q.

I plan to purchase a property in Ibstone. Is a chancel search compulsory?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Ickenham or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Through some parish councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no guarantee that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not continue to be so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
