Through some parish councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will remain liability-free for new owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.Q.
