Chancel in Ceredigion

Chancel Repair in Ceredigion

Chancel repair liability refers to a legally-enforceable right some Ceredigion churches possess, obliging local homeowners to pay for repairs. 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.

Chancel Liability changes

The Government acknowledges that the existence of a liability for chancel repair will affect the value of the property in question. In many cases, this effect can be mitigated by relatively inexpensive insurance, but in order to make the process of identifying affected land as fast as possible, new legislation requires the church to register their interest before 2003.

The current approach to Chancel Searches

A chancel search is carried out to assess whether the parish in which the home is located is likely to benefit from this liability. If the result of this search confirms the risk, then a more thorough search may be recommended. If you do not wish to take the risk, insurance is available to protect you in the event that the local Ceredigion church does opt to pursue their right to claim repair costs. Arranging indemnity insurance is generally inexpensive and straightforward.

After several acts of legislation passed in the early 20th Century, residential properties in Wales will not be likely to require a chancel liability search.

Lenders in Ceredigion

My solicitor is not on my Lender's panel - what do I do?

Lenders once permitted any solicitors' firm to join their panel. These panels were established so that firms could join and thereby perform legal work on mortgages on behalf of lenders. Lenders have also reduced the size of their panels, setting more restrictive criteria for membership. If your lender does not accept your chosen solicitor, you must make a decision as to how to proceed; you could either obtain a mortgage from another lender, or instruct another firm of conveyancer who are on the panel. Generally, it is cheaper to have the same firm act both for you and your lender, but you could also choose to persist with both your first choice of lender and solicitor, and pay for a lawyer selected by the lender to carry out the relevant legal work. Consider these issues if you are intending to stay with your solicitor rather than opt for your mortgage lender's choice:

  • You will have to pay your lender's legal costs
  • By being required to send documents to the lender's solicitors, delays will inevitably occur
  • You will be unable to contact the lender's firm directly, as they will be acting for the lender rather than you

Advice for completing the conveyancing for your move faster

Fridaysmove's Ceredigion conveyancing experts can push the transaction forward by engaging with other parties to reduce communication delays. Instructing a proactive conveyancing solicitor is one step towards improving the likelihood of completing your home move faster.

  • Ask your solicitor to order searches early
  • Send specific questions to your solicitor as soon as you can
  • Supply certified identification quickly

If you are selling, some of these can be completed even before you accept an offer. This could easily cut a week or two off your transaction.

Online Conveyancing Solicitors

Home movers and investors who have selected high street conveyancers in the past may believe that low fees marketed on a property legal website are suggestive of poor communication.

An assumption made by many who avoid 'online conveyancing' is that downsides to are inevitable when choosing a cheaper online solicitor over a high street firm. In truth, locally-based but costly solicitors exist, as do fast, low-cost firms that market online.

While some home buyers and sellers prefer to be able to visit their conveyancing lawyer, you do not need to do so. A communicative, proactive conveyancing solicitor should often complete your conveyancing faster than a lawyer you need to meet face-to-face.

Conveyancing for New Build Houses

With house prices on the rise and available properties are harder to find, new build property is becoming more popular. Positives when buying new build homes include being chain-free, but some of the disadvantages include the build schedule's potential for delay.

Conveyancing for newly built properties is a distinct experience from buying an existing property. Considering the time considerations and potential complexity of newly built properties, instructing a conveyancing solicitor as early as possible is recommended.

Environmental in Ceredigion

Ceredigion solicitors will carry out an Environmental Report to highlight any serious local environmental issues

Your ideal home's history may hide health risks and other dangers. Fortunately, an environmental search is there to uncover these.

Your Ceredigion Conveyancing Solicitor will usually perform a search of a variety of records of issues, including

  • the historical use of the land,
  • past contaminants and polluting processes,
  • landfill,
  • waste treatment sites,
  • nearby toxic substances,
  • the probability of radon gas, and,
  • the risk of subsidence and flooding

The clean up of environmental problems is usually the responsibility of whoever caused the contamination. Liability could pass to the owner of a property if the council cannot identify the original person responsible for the contamination. Buyers should be aware of this, as the costs can be considerable. In some cases, you may also be able to review the full technical report used to prepare the search.
