If I am buying close to a church built in the 16th Century in Royton, do you recommend that we get a search for chancel liability?

Owners of property near to a church in the area are expected to contribute towards the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Church properties in this area where chancel liability may apply include St Anne, Longsight and St Paul.


Does my assigned Royton lawyer report back to me about the cost of the council tax for a Band A maisonette before completion?


A property lawyer will speak to the governing Oldham local authority to discover the correct council tax rates, which will be added to the title report.

If we plan to buy in the parish of Royton, will we need a chancel search?


The conveyancing lawyer could advise a chancel search, whichever parish in which the building being purchased is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


We are intending to buy a flat in a designated conservation areas, how does one get details about the current state of upkeep?


English Heritage administer information on the state of conservation areas along with the vulnerability to standards slipping. Conservation areas are designated by the local authority (Oldham) who maintain conservation area concerns from public spaces to the obstruction of advertising hoardings.
