Chimneys & Fireplaces Question

How do i make sure my chimney is safe to use as a coal/wood fireplace? what else do i need to do other than fit the fireplace?

A chimney sweep already took a look and said no need to sweep it yet, no need for liner unless we go for a wood burning stove (which we are not doing). What about ventilation and checking the state of the flue higher up?

Most sweeps should check it for you and do a smoke test.
