CHANCEL REPAIR UPDATE

16th October 2013

Chancel Repair liability will now cease to apply but only at the point of the first or next registration of a title after 12 October 2013 and following a Transfer made for valuable consideration.

This is not an end to chancel repair liabilty. Indiidual Church dioceses can still register potential liabilty against title but can only do so up to the point of first sale of a property for valuable consideration after 2013.

Therefore unless a property that is being acquired now has been the subject of a sale for valuable consideration since 12 October 2013 chancel repair liabilty insurance is still recommended.
