A property lawyer could recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the property being purchased is located. In older areas of Rochester, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Sevington, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.Q.
