Will I need to get a chancel search? We are purchasing by rectory grounds in Taunton.


In Taunton, some owners can be required to subsidise upkeep of churches. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including county histories. Churches in the local area include St James, St James, Holy Trinity and St John the Evangelist.


There are a lot of books about doing ones own conveyancing when selling a maisonette. Would it be a false economy to carry out the DIY conveyancing ourselves?


There is no argument why you cannot decide to do the conveyancing without Taunton conveyancer. However, a conveyancing solicitor juggles a significant number of activities such as approving contract and locating planning docs many of which require a skilled professional.

Above all amateur lawyers will be working without the applicable professional indemnity insurance which qualified solicitors practices are legally obligated to take out.


We are buying a chapel in the parish of Wells St Cuthbert. Will a chancel search be compulsory?


Whichever Taunton parish in which you are purchasing, a Taunton conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. In Taunton's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
