Q.

If we are intending to purchase near Kingston upon Thames, in the parish of Hornsey, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish where the residence being bought is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have decided to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not automatically be the case for future owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

A.

Stamp Duty in Kingston upon Thames is based on the valuation. On a £649000 home, stamp duty will be £25960.*

Q.

Can you suggest how I hold off paying for stamp duty?

Stamp duty scheme is not advised when buying in Kingston upon Thames. Such schemes are costly and can be very unlikely to succeed.
