Do we need a chancel search if we are purchasing in the parish of Cauldon, near Lichfield?


A conveyancing lawyer could advise that a chancel search is taken out, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. Although some parish councils have taken the decision to impose chancel repairs on owners of land subject to chancel liability, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not be so in future, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
