Is it important that I get a chancel search? I am purchasing a Penkridge property on the same road as a 1700s 'parson's close'.

A.

Chancel repair can require Penkridge home owners to contribute towards the cost of repairs to churches. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search.

Will we need a chancel search if we are purchasing in the parish of Broome, near Penkridge?

A.

A property lawyer may suggest a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the house being bought is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will continue to be free from liability, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
