Do we need a chancel search when I am buying in Kilgetty on the same road as an ecclesiastical parish?
Chancel repair liability can require Kilgetty property owners to fund repairs to nearby church property. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Kilgetty property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners.
What can be done about trees with TPOs if they are cutting out the light into the house?
Tree Preservation Orders (or TPOs) are legal protections for individual trees, which means you are prohibited from pruning, cutting or removing the plant without the formal consent of the local authority. There are certain caveats such as whether it is causing an immediate danger to life, but the local authority will still need to be informed.
As a homeowner, you have a number of rights, including Right to Light: that is, you should expect natural daylight to enter your property through windows without being blocked (again there may be caveats which will be unearthed in the conveyancing). If a tree with a TPO has grown so much that it is blocking out light, you can apply to the local authority for permission to prune the tree sufficiently to return your Right to Light. It becomes more complex if the tree in question is on a neighbour’s property, and you should discuss any resulting costs with them.
Homeward Legal's solicitors have years of experience in dealing with all sorts of legal issues including TPOs, providing you with practical guidance and help. We are best placed to help you with your move, so call our team on 0800 038 6699 today.
What can a Kilgetty conveyancing lawyer advise if the flat we want to buy is inside the boundary of a conservation area in Pembrokeshire and has unfitting window frames fitted to it?

Should we order a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of Mynachlogddu?
Whether you are buying a house in Kilgetty or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not be so in future. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
