Q.

Will you need a chancel search? I am buying a property in Cranfield.

A.

The Law Lords decision in a landmark case 10 years ago confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Cranfield churches where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Peter & St Paul.
