Whether you are buying a residence in Ilford or elsewhere in the county, the Ilford conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair may be imposed on new owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
