Q.

Is it a sensible idea to bypass paying out for stamp duty?

A.

We do not advise clients get involved with any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed. There have been certain government initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. You will be able to confirm your eligibility for any such active initiatives with your solicitor..

Is it recommended that we get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing next to priory land in West Thurrock.

Some owners in West Thurrock can be required to contribute towards repairs to a church in the area. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Church lands in West Thurrock include St. Clement's Church.

A.

Locales deemed to be of architectural merit, such as picturesque villages, will be defined as areas of conservation. The local council will be able to advise further about local areas of conservation, and the conveyancing lawyer handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.
