Do you need to get a chancel liability search if I am buying a property near land owned by the church in Ravenshead?


The outcome of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must contribute towards the cost of church repairs. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Ravenshead must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Ravenshead Church of England properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Peter.

I plan to buy a restored chapel in Clayworth. Is a chancel search necessary?


A Ravenshead conveyancing solicitor could advise that a chancel search is taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have determined to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not automatically be the case for future owners. For property in the parish of Clayworth, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
