Whether you are buying a house in Newbury or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor instructed to handle the transaction might recommend that a chancel search is ordered.

For property in the parish of Wallingford Holy Trinity, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
