Regardless of the Sandgate parish in which you are buying, the property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
