Q.

Is it necessary that we get searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing near a 1700s rectory in Biggleswade.

A.

Owners of property in Biggleswade may be subject to chancel repair liability. A chancel search is employed to check whether such a liability exists. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Church lands in the local area include St Andrew.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if we are intending to purchase in the parish of Tingrith?

A.

Whether you are buying a building in Biggleswade or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor instructed to handle the transaction is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will remain liability-free for new owners.
