We plan to buy a converted chapel in the parish of Ball's Pond. Will a chancel search be necessary?


The solicitor could recommend a chancel search, whichever parish in which the residence being purchased is located. In Kensington's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on current owners of a residence where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


What are our options if we acquire a house in a Kensington and Chelsea council designated conservation area ?


Part of conveyancing for buyers includes making enquiries of the Kensington and Chelsea authority to establish conservation area status and formal approval for any alterations. .

In the event that no authority consents can be provided, your solicitor will recommend all options for example purchasing an indemnity policy or obtaining retrospective approval from Kensington and Chelsea planning authority.
