Q.

Is it important that I get searches for chancel liability? We are buying a Walton property near a church furlong.

A.

Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Walton Church of England properties include St Mary, Holy Trinity, St John the Evangelist and St. Paul's.
