Pinpoint Chancel Repair
With around 5,200 pre-Reformation churches across England and Wales, chancel repairs potentially affect up to 500,000 homes. That makes instructing a Chancel Repair Search essential for those buying residential or commercial property.
The historic nature of chancel repairs means many liabilities are not recorded on title deeds, but they remain legally enforceable. A Chancel Check report will reveal whether a property is within a parish where a potential chancel repair liability exists.
When there is no risk of any liability for chancel repairs, a Certificate will be issued to confirm this.
When the report records that a property is located within a parish and potentially liable for chancel repair payments, Searches UK offers chancel liability insurance that will protect a home buyer against future costs.
