I plan to purchase a medieval barn conversion in Harton. Is a chancel search important?

A.

A solicitor responsible for your move could recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have taken the decision to impose chancel repairs on new owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not automatically be the case for future owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
