Q.

If we are purchasing a Nether Stowey maisonette close to a rectory manor, do I need a chancel search?

A.

The Law Lords decision in a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further. Nether Stowey Church of England properties include The Blessed Virgin Mary.
