Chancel Repair Liability is a law dating back to medieval times when churches, or chancels were maintained by wealthy land owners. Since then the large estates of land have been broken down and developed to multiple private residences, however the Chancel Repair Liability, in many instances has been passed down to the new properties. It is estimated that Chancel land accounts for 40% of all land in England and Wales. This in effect means property owners could be liable to pay for repairs to the local church with bills potentially running into tens or even hundreds of thousands of pounds. You can purchase a ChancelCheck´┐Ż from Pali, which will tell you if a property is liable for Chancel repair.
