Q.

What authority keeps records for checking the status of repair of conservation areas in Lake District?

A.

English Heritage maintain information on the state of conservation areas as well as the trend of the area. Conservation areas are set up by the local South Lakeland planning authority, who administer conservation area concerns from including things like street clutter, removal of chimney stacks and whether trees can be cut down.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Beetham?

A.

The conveyancer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish where the house being bought is found. Chancel repair may be imposed on the current owners of a house where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

I am buying in Lake District, and would like to find out whether there are any conservation areas.

A.

These areas safeguard areas designated as being of special architectural or historic interest. You may wish to contact the council for more information, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail during the conveyancing process.

Can you advise how I defer paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

SDLT is due for houses over 125,000 pounds. We do not recommend any stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later. There have been a number of legitimate initiatives, however, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

Having read about the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, we are thinking that property environmental searches may not be detailed enough?

A.

An experienced Lake District conveyancing solicitor will suggest that you get property conveyancing searches if the standard conveyancing searches identifies a significant risk of flooding in Lake District

It could be worth trying to contact a neighbour or local resident for added peace of mind.

South Lakeland local authority searches carried out by your Lake District conveyancing solicitor during the conveyancing process will determine the existence of suitable authorisation for modifications to the property.
