Q.

If I am intending to purchase near Leigh On Sea, in the parish of West Horndon with Ingrave, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer should confirm that a chancel search be ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have chosen to charge chancel repairs on new owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will remain liability-free for new owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
