A.

Regardless of the Woodford Green parish you are buying in, the conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no guarantee that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not automatically be the case for future owners.
