Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of West Camel, near Corston?

A.

Whichever Corston parish you are purchasing in, a solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Corston's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of West Camel, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
