Q.

Is it necessary that we get searches for chancel liability? I am buying a North Harrow property close to parsonage grounds.

A.

Chancel repair liability can require residential property owners to pay for maintenance of nearby church land. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. North Harrow ecclesiastical properties which may give rise to chancel liability include The Parish Church of St Alban.

Q.

If we plan to buy near North Harrow, in the parish of Stanwell, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a house in North Harrow or elsewhere in the county, the property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of North Harrow, chancel repair may be imposed on owners of a house where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
