A.

Whether you are buying a house in Fulham or elsewhere in the county, the Fulham conveyancing solicitor could advise that a chancel search is ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils have decided to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will continue to be free from liability.
