Is the conveyancing process more complicated if intending to purchase a listed property?

A Listed Building is one that has been listed by the government as being of special architectural or historic merit. Architectural design, interior decoration, or craftsmanship are all factors which may qualify a property for listed status. Fortunately, the planning process is not intended to stop any alterations to a listed building.

Alternatively, properties may be listed as scheduled monuments, but will still have strict guidelines governing planned works. Monuments and listed buildings in Vale Of Glamorgan include Barry Castle, Castle Ditches, Cwm George Camp, and Dinas Powis Castle.

Chancel in Vale Of Glamorgan

Liability for Chancel Repair in Vale Of Glamorgan

This is the liability of a property owner to contribute to the cost of repair of the chancel of a church. The potential for chancel repair liabilities has been passed down to successive owners of houses in Vale Of Glamorgan which were once part of rectorial land.

Is Chancel Liability likely to change?

The Government has no present plans to abolish chancel repair outright, but a recent change in the law does oblige churches to make their claim known to the Land Registry for all registered houses. This will help property buyers get a clear idea of a house's chancel liability. Conveyancing Solicitors are more likely to advise going straight to an Indemnity insurance policy which will pay any claim made by the church. In some rare cases, indemnity insurance might not be available. In the event that indemnity insurance is not available enquiries will be made to the relevant church as to the likelihood of a claim being made in the foreseeable future. Indemnity is available for both residential and commercial properties.

After legislation was passed in the early 20th Century, Welsh conveyancing transactions are much less likely to be affected by chancel liability.
