My agent has put forward a solicitors firm that they have used before. Do we need to use them?

Q.

I am intending to buy a restored chapel in East Boldon. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

The solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils have decided to impose chancel repairs on current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will continue to be free from liability. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
