Is it necessary that we get a chancel search? I am buying a apartment on the same street as a parsonage in Caldicot.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Caldicot which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for repairs to an old church building. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Caldicot must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search.

The estate agent we are using in Tidworth has named the conveyancing solicitor whom they usually use. Is it advisable to use this firm?
