Is it necessary to get searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing in Freshwater Bay.


Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Freshwater Bay Church council. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country.

If I plan to buy in the parish of Freshwater Bay, will it be necessary to get a chancel search?


A conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. Through some church councils have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will continue to be free from liability, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
