A.

A property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out, whichever parish in which the property being purchased is found. Although some church councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on new owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so. For property in the parish of Rudford, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
