Chancel Repair Searches

By carrying out a Personal Chancel Repair Search we are able to establish if there is an obligation for a homeowner to contribute towards repairs to the chancel of the local parish church.

These searches can only be carried out on land in England, however not all land is covered by the registers.

Our fees for this type of search are £140.00 + VAT (£168.00) plus disbursements.

Results are usually available within 14 working days.
