Chancel liability

This is a strange old condition, but it requires property owners to contribute to the upkeep of church buildings nearby, so could mean costs down the line.

The laws that govern Chancel Liability date back to the reign of Henry VIII and are viewed by many as arcane and outdated. Despite the best efforts of the legal community they remain in place and therefore at In-Deed we recommend insurance against any liability and include this in our Price Promise.
