Repeal the Chancel Repairs Act 1932

Comment 6th July 2010

The burden on householders of Chancel repairs is out of kilter with the reality of today's financial status as has been shown in recent cases.  The ability of a church to demand under law finacial support must be removed.

Why does this matter?

The burden on individuals has the potential to be of bankrupting levels and is unfair.  Any community facility should be a burden on the whole community.  The parish church is not necessarily the church of the property incumbent and there should be no burden.
