Q.

We are buying a restored chapel in Grain. Will a chancel search be compulsory?

A.

The solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish where the home being bought is located. In Sidcup's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of Grain, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
