A.

The result of a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must fund church repairs. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Meopham churches where chancel liability may apply include St John The Baptist.

Should you want to , you can take care of the majority of the your own conveyancing without approaching a trained conveyancer in Meopham .

Meopham and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as acidic compounds and groundwater contamination.
