Local issues considered by Lewisham Conveyancing Solicitors

Lewisham Listed Buildings

Extension or alteration of a listed property will require special consent. Any planning consents relating to a home will be revealed in a local search, as will other relevant planning information. Carrying out unauthorised work to a listed building is a criminal offence, and may be punished by a fine or imprisonment.

The impact of Tree Preservation Orders

When land around Lewisham is developed for housing, the existence of a TPO will be revealed in a local search against property on the original estate, whether or not there are any affected trees on the specific property being purchased. Note that developers are often required to plant trees and carry out other landscaping work as a condition of getting planning permission. Trees planted in accordance with a condition placed on new build property developers are not necessarily subject to a TPO. Obtaining a copy of any TPOs affecting a Lewisham home before it is marketed will make it easier for copies to be sent to a buyer's Conveyancing Solicitor with the draft contract.

Lewisham Chancel Searches

Chancel Repair Liability is an ancient interest benefiting many churches across England and Wales, potentially allowing the church to require owners of former rectorial land to meet the cost of repairing the church chancel. In the medieval period, local churches were often maintained by landowners, and land owned by the parish rector, or identified as rectorial, retained a liability to pay for repairs to the chancel. This obligation may remain active today. Note that there is not a risk-free distance from a church which ensures that liability will not apply.

Chancel Liability Searches

The search will address whether the property lies within a parish where a potential chancel repair liability exists, but even if the result of this is affirmative, the home you wish to buy may not itself be affected. If you do not wish to take the risk, insurance is available to protect you in the event that the local Lewisham church does opt to pursue their right to claim repair costs. 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 is readily available for most properties.
