Do I need to instruct a property lawyer used by the estate agent?

We plan to buy a converted chapel in the parish of Ball's Pond. Will a chancel search be necessary?


The solicitor could recommend a chancel search, whichever parish in which the residence being purchased is located. In Kensington's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on current owners of a residence where parish councils have not imposed the same
