Local issues considered by Kingstanding Conveyancing Solicitors

Chancel in KingstandingTrees in KingstandingDisadvantaged in Kingstanding

Chancel Repair Liability in Kingstanding

Liability for the repair costs of the chancel, or space around the altar, of a church may exist for owners of nearby homes. For many years it was felt that chancel liability was unenforceable. However, a recent judgement in favour of the church seeking chancel repair costs, (Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank [2003] UKHL 37), reversed this assumption.

The future of Chancel Repair Liability

Government legislation intended to reduce uncertainty has been passed which requires churches to declare whether a Kingstanding house is at risk. A better option may be to purchase indemnity insurance. Such insurance is scaled on the value and size of the property and starts from around £40 (this is a one-off premium). Options to buy successor cover are usually available, so when you later sell the home, you are effectively also selling peace of mind to the new owner. Insurance for most homes in Kingstanding is easy to arrange.

Churches in and near Kingstanding include Elim Church Kingstanding, 120 Warren Road, Kingstanding, Birmingham, B44 8QD.

The impact of Tree Preservation Orders

In cases where houses have been built on land subject to an existing tree preservation order (TPO), it will be necessary to obtain a copy of this TPO from the council to check the plan. This is necessary to confirm whether this existing TPO directly affects the newer property. Anyone proposing to cut down a tree in Kingstanding (under the exemption that is dying, dead or dangerous) is advised to give the council five days notice before carrying out the work, except in an emergency. Conditions placed on Kingstanding developers requiring them to plant trees during construction do not necessarily imply a TPO is in place. By obtaining copies of any TPOs impacting your property before you go on the market, you will improve your chances of a faster transaction when you do find a buyer.

Qualifying for stamp duty relief in Kingstanding

Stamp duty relief may be available in nearly 2,000 'disadvantaged areas' nationwide. Areas designated are identified by local government ward or electoral divisions. For homes bought for less than £150,000, this relief may be available. Above this designated limit of £150k, the normal rates of duty apply, and no further relief may be available. By making a straightforward search by postcode, you can usually determine if a property purchase below £150,000 will benefit, however. For more information regarding Kingstanding disadvantaged areas, or to determine if your prospective purchase qualifies, call us today.
