I am buying a house in a conservation area in Shipley, where can I find more details on the standard of repair?

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Barwick in Elmet, near Shipley?

A.

A solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish in which the property being purchased is found. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on owners of a property where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
