The outcome of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must pay for church repairs. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church lands in this area include St Thomas Leesfield, Parish of Leesfield, St Thomas, Saint James's Church, Barry Street and St Paul.Q.
The standard procedure is to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental and Coal Mining (Con29M) and, depending on certain criteria, unique particular e.g. a Chancel check Search.Q.
