When you are buying a Newtown maisonette by a 13th Century priory, is it recommended that we get a chancel liability search?

Some owners in Newtown can be required to fund repairs to churches. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Churches in the area include Holy Spirit, Holy Trinity, King Charles the Martyr and St Mary the Virgin & St John the Baptist.
