Q.

If I am intending to buy near Wandsworth, in the parish of Westminster St Margaret, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor could recommend a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not automatically be the case for future owners. For property in the parish of Westminster St Margaret, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Is a leasehold supplement a fee or disbursement?

A.

Fees and disbursements ought to be clearly identified on a quote. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be clearly stated in your quote.
