If we are purchasing next to land owned by the church in Truro, will we need a chancel liability search?

The judgement in a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must fund church repairs, if the parochial church council has registered their interest in so doing. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Truro property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. This is something that your conveyancing solicitor will be able to address with you. Truro churches, where chancel liability may apply, include:

  • All Saints, Tresawls Road, Truro, TR1 3LD
  • St. Kea All Hallows, Churchtown, Kea, Truro, TR3 6AE
