Where land in Watchet was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to fund upkeep of nearby church property.

Churches in the local area which may give rise to chancel liability include Holy Cross Chapel and St Decuman.

Q.

What will a Watchet conveyancing lawyer advise if the property we hope to purchase is in a conservation are in West Somerset council and turns out to have unapproved PVC windows added?

A.

West Somerset local authority enquiries conducted by a solicitor during the legal process should ascertain if the Watchet property a designated conservation area and evidence of planning consent for modifications will be asked for. In the event that no necessary permissions be available, your solicitor will inform you of the best alternative such as requesting an indemnity policy or seeking retrospective permission from West Somerset planning authority.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a chapel in Shipham. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Watchet parish you are buying in, a lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have taken the decision to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners. For property in the parish of Shipham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
