We plan to buy a property in Bonnington. Will a chancel search be necessary?


Regardless of the Petts Wood parish you are buying in, the conveyancing solicitor could advise that a chancel search be taken out. Through some parish councils have exercised their right to exact 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 not automatically be the case for future owners.
