Local issues considered by Powys Conveyancing Solicitors

Disadvantaged in PowysChancel in PowysRoadandrail in Powys

Qualifying for stamp duty relief in Powys

Disadvantaged areas relief may be available for property bought in around 2,000 locations across the country. Local government wards or electoral divisions are used to define the boundaries of these. For homes bought for less than £150,000, this relief may be available. If a search does not confirm whether am property is in a disadvantaged area, your solicitor should contact the local authority. That said, for any purchase below £150,000, it is worth making a simple postcode search to find out if a property is in a Disadvantaged area. For more information regarding Powys disadvantaged areas, or to determine if your prospective purchase qualifies, call us today.

Chancel Repair in Powys

Homeowners throughout Powys and Wales are often unaware of this potential obligation to pay for church repairs. 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.

Is Chancel Liability likely to change?

Unlike tithes and similar obligations, chancel liability is unlikely to be abolished any time soon. Fortunately, however, churches are required to inform the Land Registry of liable homes by a 2013 deadline. Past this point, they will be unable to make a claim for chancel repairs for a registered property if this declaration was not made prior to the deadline. Buyers should be aware that the situation is less clear for property which remains unregistered at the Land Registry.

The current approach to Chancel Searches

Proving liability could depend on records written centuries ago. In these circumstances, it is hard to give a guarantee that a house is entirely risk-free. Indemnity insurance may be a better solution. Indemnity insurance is endorsed by the Law Society. Indemnity is available for both residential and commercial properties.

After the Church of Wales' disestablishment in the early 20th Century, homes in Wales are much less likely to need such a search.

Local Transport Issues

Buyers should be aware of all transport works and other issues in the local area which may affect their Powys property. During the conveyancing process, a property lawyer will investigate whether the property is within 200 metres of:

  • any proposed new road
  • any proposed alteration to an existing road involving construction of an underpass, flyover, bridge, elevated road or roundabout
  • road widening or making an existing road a dual carriageway
  • a proposed railway, tramway, light railway or monorail
In rarer cases, the council may install a 'no entry' sign or similar restriction, preventing access to a road. Such an action may not technically be a 'scheme' and therefore may not be mentioned in searches.
