Although some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will continue to be free from liability. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
