Chancel repair liability refers to a legally-enforceable right some Newport churches possess, obliging local homeowners to pay for repairs. Buyers should be aware that chancel repair can cost hundreds of thousands of pounds. This dates back to the medieval period, when churches (or more specifically their chancels) were maintained by wealthy owners of rectorial land. Since this time, large estates have been broken down into 100's or 1,000's of privately owned properties. Note that there is not a risk-free distance from a church which ensures that liability will not apply.
Welsh conveyancing transactions are less likely to need such a search.
Confirmation of a the status of a listed building will be discovered by a buyer's Conveyancing Solicitor, as part of the local search. Special interest may also apply to nationally important examples of particular building types and techniques, for example buildings displaying technological innovation or virtuosity. As the whole property is protected by listed status, if, for example, a sixteenth century house is listed, it would be an offence to demolish a twentieth century concrete garage in the grounds of the house. Owners of flats or apartments in a listed building should bear in mind that the building maintenance costs of such properties may be higher than for purpose-built blocks.
Alternatively, properties may be listed as scheduled monuments, but will still have strict guidelines governing planned works. Monuments and listed buildings in Newport include Bowl Barrow on Arreton Down, Bowl Barrow on Tapnell Down, Canal aqueduct, and Carn Briw Round Cairn.

They have also reduced the size of their panels, removing firms which do not carry out much Conveyancing work or which they consider to have proved unsatisfactory in the past. These options are available to any homebuyer whose solicitor is not on their lender's panel:
It is usually cheaper to have the same firm act both for you and your lender, and carry out all the conveyancing work in connection with a purchase and the mortgage. Be aware of the following, if you choose to remain with your first choice of law firm:
