Q.

We plan to purchase a converted chapel in the parish of Kew. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the Virginia Water parish in which you are buying, the solicitor responsible for your move may suggest that a chancel search is taken out.

It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
