Chancel in Caterham

What is Chancel Repair Liability?

Homeowners throughout Caterham and Surrey are often unaware of this potential obligation to pay for church repairs. This dates back to the medieval period, when churches (or more specifically their chancels) were maintained by wealthy owners of rectorial land. Since this time, large estates have been broken down into 100's or 1, 000's of privately owned properties.

Performing Chancel Liability Searches on Caterham properties

Even though an in-depth search is specific to the property, it is still not definitive, as demonstrating liability may rely on obscure or ambiguous centuries-old records. If a liability is identified via this search, then indemnity insurance potentially may be harder to obtain. A better option may be to purchase indemnity insurance. Such insurance is scaled on the value and size of the property and starts from around £ 40 (this is a one-off premium). Insurance is readily available for most properties.

Churches in and near Caterham include Oakhall Church, Francis Road, Caterham, Surrey.
