If I plan to purchase near Grangetown, in the parish of St Fagan's with Lanilterne, do we need a chancel search?

Regardless of the Grangetown parish you are buying in, the conveyancing solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a house where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
