Owners of property neighbouring older church buildings must contribute towards the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Some names or words such as 'vicarage' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Church properties in this area include St Bartholomew.

A.

Local authority LLC1 searches carried out by your Porthleven property lawyer during the legal process will find out whether the property is in a designated conservation area and any evidence of formal approval for alterations will be requested.

Q.

If we are intending to purchase near Porthleven, in the parish of St Mellion, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the Porthleven parish you are purchasing in, the property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on current owners of a home where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
