I plan to purchase a rectory in Stowford. Will a chancel search be necessary?


Your conveyancing solicitor might recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the property being bought is found. Through some church councils have decided to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will continue to be free from liability. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
