A.

The Ottershaw conveyancing solicitor could advise that a chancel search is ordered. Although some church councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not be so in future.
