Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Weston, near Kings Norton?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Kings Norton or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to impose chancel repairs on current owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will remain liability-free for new owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Stamp duty reduction should not be considered, as such schemes are highly expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed imposing penalties and investigating all your tax matters.
