Tithe rents; chancel repair liability; old restrictive covenants; common land; listed buildings; old properties have been subject to many different rules and regulations over many years. So title to period homes tends usually to be more complex.
We can investigate all such issues fully.
Where our searches reveal issues or risks which can no longer be negotiated (the relevant parties having since died or disappeared) we can advise on the possibilities of specialist insurance policies to protect your position, and obtain such policies on your behalf.
Listed buildings are protected against unauthorised demolition or alteration. We will check what statutory consents are available for any disclosed alterations.
Whilst our searches, negotiations and enquiries are limited to matters affecting legal aspects of property ownership, for those clients who would like more research into the social history of their houses we can instruct specialist researchers.
