We plan to buy a property in the parish of Ancroft. Will a chancel search be important?
Whichever Newbiggin By The Sea parish you are purchasing in, a conveyancer is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Newbiggin By The Sea's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on new owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past.
We are buying a property where the seller has unfortunately fitted artificial stone cladding to the maisonette in Newbiggin By The Sea which we think might possibly conflict with local conservation area rules

How much effort is it to sort out a house in multiple occupancy (HMO)?
A house in multiple occupancy is defined as a property where at least three tenants live forming more than one household (one person or more living together), but share kitchen and bathroom facilities.
As a landlord of an HMO, your responsibilities include ensuring proper fire safety measures are in place, gas safety checks are completed annually, the electric system is checked every five years, there are sufficient bathroom and kitchen facilities for everyone to comfortably use, communal areas are kept clean and safe to use, and waste disposal is managed effectively (provision of bins and bags).
This requires more effort than having a property to rent to one household, and you may wish to employ a solicitor to sort out the legal side of things in the first instance, and a property management company to handle the administration, disputes, etc. on a daily basis.
