Listedbuildings in Powys

Is the legal process more difficult when planning to buy an extended listed building?

As part of the local search, a buyer's solicitor in Powys will confirm whether a building is listed. Examples of particular construction techniques, including innovative design, may qualify a building to be listed. Anyone selling a listed property should ensure that their conveyancing solicitor has copies of all relevant planning consents, as well as any other associated documents and copies of plans which may be required by a buyer. Maintenance of listed buildings may require more costly materials.

Your solicitor may instead inform you that the property is, or contains, a scheduled monument, and is protected by a similar set of restrictions. Such properties include Aber-Naint Dyke, Broniarth Hill Camp, Bryn Mawr Camp, and Bryn y Saethau Hillfort.

Chancel in Powys

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.

Disadvantaged in Powys

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.

Mining in Powys

Do you need to carry out a Coal Authority search when buying near Powys?

Mining - of coal, metal ores and other minerals - has been carried out across the country since the copper age of prehistory. Residential property may be affected by old underground workings, especially if there is still a risk of subsidence. Buyers' conveyancing solicitors carry out a standard form of search with the Coal Authority when a property is in an area where mining was known to have taken place or where coal is known to exist. A coal search will indicate whether any opencast workings have taken place or are planned in the vicinity. Although this may have less direct ongoing impact on property, the existence of large opencast workings in the vicinity can have an adverse effect while coal is being extracted. Should a search reveal former mining activity in close proximity then a further survey may be required. There is no single source of information about areas where other minerals were mined, but these workings mostly occur in areas where there is fortunately no significant housing.

There are approximately 17 areas in Powys where a mining search is required. These include; Penrhos, Cefn Byrle, Abercraf, Ynyswen, Glan-rhyd, Cwmgiedd and Pen-y-cae.
