Confusion over this matter catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Several sources are used to determine liability in Lakenham, including parish records. Lakenham churches include St Mark.Q.
A solicitor instructed to handle the transaction may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.Q.
Your instructed property lawyer will carry out searches establish whether the property is inside a conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have required consents from the Norwich authority.Q.

Homeward Legal, though, will act on behalf of the majority of mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay the lender's legal fees.
