Q.

We plan to buy a barn conversion in St Edrin's. Will a chancel search be appropriate?

Your conveyancer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which

the building being purchased is found. In Tenby's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

A.

In the majority of situations, as soon as possible, as the legal work can commence straight away.

Q.

If we are purchasing near parish grounds in Tenby, do you need to get a chancel liability search?

A.

Chancel repair liability can require home owners to contribute towards maintenance of older church buildings. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search.
