A.

Your Portishead conveyancing solicitor might recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the house being bought is found. Although some church councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not continue to be so, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
