Your solicitor responsible for your move might recommend that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish in which the home being purchased is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not automatically be the case for future owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
