Q.

Q.

What do we do to calculate stamp duty in Ovingham, and what should we budget for a £141000 residence?

The SDLT that is payable depends on a small number of factors, including the value of the property, and whether it is in a 'disadvantaged area'. Stamp duty will be £1410 on a £141000 property (information correct February 2013).

Do you advise that we get a chancel search? We are buying a Ovingham property by a church built in the 1600s.

A.

Some owners in Ovingham can be required to cover the cost of maintenance of churches. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Ovingham church lands include St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

What environmental concerns can affect land in Ovingham, and will they be checked for comprehensively?
