Chancel Repair Liability PCC action sheet (updated on the 1


Feb 2013)

PCC responsibilities Each PCC should: 1) 2) 3) 4)

Understand the principles and ascertain their personal obligations as charity trustees Find the parish in ‘The Clerical Guide and Ecclesiastical Directory’ by Gilbert (available on line in Google books) Look up the parish in the series of books called “ Victorian County History” (some of this on the internet) Obtain or view all the parish tithe files from the National Archives or local archives if present. If the parish has several tithe districts there will a number of these files. The key files are:  Record of Ascertainments of 1936 found in IR 104 (Diocese may have a copy)  Tithe Apportionment file found under IR 29, which records mergers etc (or held in local archive)  Tithe file found under IR 18, which indicates whether there was any merger of land by deed. Some churches, such as Market Drayton, have dedicated sections.  Locate any deeds of merging of land and tithes (Tith 3) locate Rectorial glebe

5) Discover whether the parish underwent Enclosure files could be in national archives or locally held look on St Michael’s links page for help. 6) Look up the parish in Tate's book ‘Domesday of English Enclosure Acts and Awards ’if this fails. 7) If relevant, obtain or view a copy of the award to find out whether land was allocated in lieu of tithes or corn rents. 8) Locate the Enclosure maps and/or Tithe Maps for the parish, since a surveyor will need these to find any plots. 9) If the parish has any lay rectors such as Bishops or Cathedral staff and / or universities, contact either them or the church commissioners to ascertain whether they are aware of their liability. 10) Once all the research has been completed, the next stage is probably to engage a surveyor to determine the cost of locating the land.

Possible Outcomes Outcome 1. There is a small amount of land with a high proportion of apportioned liability or the land has non-apportioned liability and the plots are easily identifiable. Contact a surveyor to locate the land and engage a solicitor to gather the information to provide to the Land Registry, so that the liability can be recorded on the Land Registry. If the land had fallen into the hands of the church Commissioners (appropriators) they may accept liability but the PCC will have to prove this. Outcome 2. The amount of land is large in proportion to the liability Prepare a cost benefit analysis to provide evidence to the charity commissioners that the costs of imposing the liability exceed the benefits. To do this you will need to obtain:  

a surveyor’s estimate of the cost to find each plot of land an estimate of the legal costs of registering the liability on the land and dealing with contested claims

The PCC should then consider:  how much money the PCC has at present to cover the fees  how often claims would be made on the lay rectors and what the return would be  whether people will give less money to the church if they are upset about the liability, and if so, whether this can be proven


At this stage, the PCC could send a letter to the Charity Commissioners under s 110 of the Charities Act 2011, explaining the issues. If the Charity Commissioners do not agree with the proposals, it is possible to reapply, providing further information. There is no need to write to the charity commissioners in every circumstance or outcome 3 but I would recommend in many cases to protect individual PCC members. Outcome 3. The land is occupied by houses and to impose liability would hinder the charitable objectives of the church (Reputational damage to the charity). The Charity Commissioners have accepted this view and evidence would be needed to support this, and I think a cost benefit analysis would be helpful. A public meeting and letters from people affected to provide evidence could aid a PCC’s case. Work with your local community including MP and councillors. The Charity Commissioners are looking for a reasonable argument as to why the PCC have chosen this way forward Outcome 4. Notify the liability on limited number of plots of the land because doing it widely is too costly This could be a reasonable response if the plots are non-apportioned. It may, in fact, be the only option since some pieces will be untraceable or too expensive to trace. Outcome 5. The land is impossible to locate and or the legal issues are opaque This would be a possible argument when there are corn rents, where the merger documents are hard to understand or where the tithe or enclosure maps are poor. Some evidence from a surveyor and/or solicitor may be needed to support this option. Outcome 6. Do nothing This may apply where a non-land owning lay Rector has a large liability, where the liability has gone or where there never has been a lay Rector. It will be necessary to get authenticated copies of the relevant documents for the Land Registry. The cost of copying a whole file from IR 29 from the Archives will be at least £100 from IR 18 at least £20. Copying Enclosure awards from National archives could cost in excess of £500.Normally only a few pages should be authenticated Recording The PCC should record the reasons behind their decision whatever it is and keep the supporting paperwork with the minutes. What they decide should be what is best for the charity if in doubt write to the Charity Commissioners. There will be instances where there is no need to write (i.e. 10% liability over 300 allotments) Research Tip Search terms to use on Google and local archives are impropriate tithes, impropriator, great tithes, lay rector, Rectorial tithes, Glebe, merger of tithes, extinguishment of tithes, deed, commutation of tithes. Enter the current name of the parish but check also older names of the parish or alternative spellings.

Researching Chancel Repair Liability on Tithe Awards (Apportionments) and Maps Every Tithe Map and Tithe Award is unique and prepared in a particular style and each parish may consist of a number of townships each with their own Tithe map and Apportionment There are, however, key issues to investigate when trying to identify Chancel Repair Liability (CRL). Tithe Apportionment 1. Check to see who got the Rectory tithes (also known as the Greater or Impropriator tithes). If they were collected only by the incumbent at the time, i.e the Vicar, Rector or curate, then there will be no CRL for that tithe. If the tithes were collected by anyone else, such as the appropriator, a lay person or clergy person other than the incumbent, or a charity, CRL may continue to exist. 2. The introduction to Tithe award will note whether there has been a reduction in the titheable area as a result of an Enclosure Award made before the Tithe Apportionment. If this is the case, it is essential to read the relevant Enclosure Award. 3. A ‘merger’ of land and tithes is usually identified in the introduction to the Tithe Apportionment, and there may be a schedule(s) of properties later in the Apportionment. It is also possible that a merger will be noted only in the main body of the Apportionment. a) If the Tithe Apportionment notes a merger, but there is no accompanying schedule of properties, you should try to obtain a copy from the National Archive (Tith 3 section). b) After the various schedule of properties in the main body of the award the properties which are merged may be identified with a plot number or not or left blank or a name simply put on the map. c) If there is a merger of land and tithes, this land has non-apportioned liability under section 1 of the 1839 Tithe Act. A PCC need only register one plot of this land to protect their asset. d) It may be difficult to identify this merged land although there may be a separate map for ‘merged’ land, stored in another archive. If it is not possible to find the merged land then CRL cannot be proved 4. The Record of Ascertainments shows the liability for each plot of land in 1936 based on the rent tithe charge. The rent charge for a field may differ between the Tithe Maps from the 1840s and the Record of Ascertainments in the 1940s, indicating that the proportion of CRL may have changed. You could research this further at the National Archives You should work out what percentage of liability each field has. Bear in mind this liability is not in the related to any other liabilities and so zero record of Ascertainment’s from 1936 does not mean there is no other liability. 5. If there is a substantial difference between the Record of Ascertainments and the Tithe Apportionment the next stage is identify why. Some possible reasons are listed below: a) There may well have been an Enclosure Award after the Tithe Map, in which case this will need to be obtained. b) The tithe charge on the land could have been redeemed (between 1836 and 1936), suggesting that any CRL has been extinguished. c) There has been a special Apportionment (obtain a copy from the National Archives). d) There may be something unusual for your parish and you may need to visit the National Archives after searching through their online records. When researching the location of particular plots the District map of your particular parish may well be helpful found under IR90 at the national archive Rev Greg Yerbury (Team Rector of Penkridge)


Reading Enclosure Awards and Maps for Chancel Repair Liability Enclosure Awards were intended to make better use of land considered to be waste or common land and, possibly, to end the collection of tithes. Land with common grazing rights was apportioned between local landowners and others using a variety of criteria. As a result of the Enclosure Awards, the wealthy, including the owner of the tithes, gained significantly at the expense of the poor. Every Enclosure (Inclosure) Award and Map is a unique hand written document. It may be very long, requiring a lot of time to understand its implications. If the enclosure was authorised by a Parliamentary Enclosure Act, it would be useful to read the Parliamentary Enclosure Act also. For research into chancel repair liability the first point is to work out how many parishes are involved in each Enclosure Award and to be aware that land may transfer parishes. It is generally the allotment post the Enclosure Award, which determines the CRL for a particular parish. An example of the standard order of allotments in Enclosure Awards: 1. A preamble, which may refer to an allotment given in lieu of tithes or sometimes in lieu of tithes & manorial rights. It is this land which would carry the CRL and should be investigated. 2. Setting up, creating and closing roads and foot paths, and laying boundaries 3. An allotment for gravel for maintenance 4. Allotment(s) for manorial rights (may include tithes, and therefore CRL) 5. Allotment(s) for impropriate (greater) tithes carrying the CRL 6. Allotment for lesser tithes for the Vicar, curate or Rector (no liability) 7. Allotments to be sold for expenses 8. Allotment for cottage lands 9. Allotment for warren rights 10. Allotment for common rights 11. Allotments to local landowners who own nearby land 12. At the end there may well be some exchanges of land and if the land for tithes is exchanged it will be the new allotment that carries the liability Having read the Enclosure Award,   

Determine the parish in which the land allotted for tithes is included at the time of the Enclosure Award. It will be necessary to check your church’s files at the National Archives since sometimes corn rents were converted into tithe rent charges. If there are Corn Rents in lieu of tithes, which are still being collected, the CRL is held by those receiving the Corn Rents. If the allotments or Corn Rents were held by an Appropriator, contact the Church Commissioners since they may have a record of this land. An Appropriator is a church organisation or body (i.e. Bishop, Dean, Cathedral chapter, Prebend)

Post script 1) To prove liability for the Land registry the relevant documents should be authenticated this would typically be the map or part of and the parts of the Enclosure or Tithe awards that show he piece of land you are interested in. 2) If the parish had a particular private Act of parliament then a copy should be obtained from parliamentary archives Rev Greg Yerbury (Team Rector of Penkridge)


Chancel Repair  Liability     What  is  chancel  repair  liability?     Chancel   repair   liability   (CRL)   is   a   long-­‐standing   and   legally   enforceable   liability   to   repair   –   or   to   contribute   to   the   cost   of   repair   of   –   the   chancel   (usually   the   easternmost  part)  of  a  parish  church.       Some  chancel  repair  liability  is  attached  to  the  ownership  of  particular  pieces  of  land.   That   is   because   the   land   in   question   originally   formed   part   of   a   rectory   (an   endowment  including  land  to  support  the  priest  who  serves  a  parish)  or  because  it   otherwise   represents   property   that   originally   formed   part   of   a   rectory.   During   the   middle   ages   monasteries   acquired   a   large   number   of   rectories.   Following   the   dissolution  of  the  monasteries  under  Henry  VIII,  a  large  amount  of  property  that  had   belonged   to   rectories   came   into   lay   ownership.   The   relevant   Acts   of   Parliament   made  it  clear  that  the  new,  lay  owners  of  the  land  held  the  land  on  the  same  terms   as  the  former  monastic  owners.     That  included  the  obligation  to  repair  the  chancel  of  the  parish  church.       When  a  person  acquires  land  to  which  CRL  is  attached,  that  person  becomes  liable  to   repair  –  or  to  contribute  to  the  cost  of  repair  of  –  the  chancel  of  the  parish  church.   CRL   was   formerly   enforceable   only   in   the   church   courts   but   in   1932   Parliament   passed  legislation  –  the  Chancel  Repairs  Act  1932  –  which  provided  that  in  future  CRL   was   to   be   enforceable   in   the   county   court   instead.   The   Chancel   Repairs   Act   1932   provides   that   the   responsible   authority   for   enforcing   CRL   is   the   parochial   church   council  of  the  parish  concerned.         Is   it   not   unfair   that   home   buyers   can   find   themselves   subject   to   chancel   repair   liability  even  if  they  were  not  aware  of  it  when  they  purchased  their  property?       While   in   theory   this   might   have   been   a   problem,   we   are   not   aware   of   any   recent   case  where  someone  has  bought  property  without  knowing  it  was  subject  to  chancel   repair  liability  and  has  subsequently  faced  a  demand  for  payment.       In   any   event,   the   issue   has   now   been   addressed   by   government   legislation.   In   future   CRL  will  need  to  be  registered  against  the  title  of  the  affected  land  if  it  is  to  bind  a   purchaser  of  the  land.  With  effect  from  14th  October  2013  purchasers,  by  inspecting   the   registered   title   of   a   property,   will   be   able   to   discover   definitively   whether   it   is   affected  by  chancel  repair  liability.        


Are PCCs  obliged  to  register  and  enforce  the  repairing  obligation?       A   PCC   is   a   charity   so   its   members   are   subject   to   the   usual   duty   of   charity   trustees   to   exercise  their  powers  in  its  best  interests.  They  cannot  therefore  simply  choose  not   to   register   or   enforce   chancel   repair   liability.   However,   as   Lord   Scott   noted   in   the   Aston  Cantlow  case  [paragraph  137],  there  may  be  circumstances  in  which  a  PCC  can   properly  decide  not  to  do  so.  A  PCC  could,  for  instance,  in  an  appropriate  case  take   into   account   the   possibility   of   excessive   hardship   that   might   be   caused   to   those   liable  if  the  obligation  were  enforced,  or  the  damage  that  enforcing  it  could  do  to  the   mission  of  the  Church  in  the  parish.  But  the  decision  is  one  for  the  individual  PCC.       Advice   from   the   General   Synod’s   Legal   Advisory   Commission   is   available   here:             Advice  from  the  Charity  Commission  is  available  here:         Is  the  Church  nationally  co-­‐ordinating  the  registering  of  chancel  repair  liability?       No.  It  is  a  matter  for  individual  PCCs,  with  the  benefit  of  advice  from  their  diocesan   registrar.         Is  the  Church  nationally  co-­‐ordinating  the  chasing  of  chancel  repair  payments?       No.  It  is  again  a  matter  for  individual  PCCs.         Are   grant-­‐making   bodies   such   as   English   Heritage   insisting   that   parishes   pursue   chancel  repair  liability  before  they  will  make  grants  to  those  parishes?       The  policy  of  English  Heritage  has  been  that  it  will  not  provide  grant  aid  to  a  PCC  in   respect   of   repairs   to   the   chancel   of   a   church   where   there   is   a   lay   rector   who   is   responsible  for  its  repair.  However,  responsibility  for  grants  for  places  of  worship  is   to  be  taken  over  by  the  Heritage  Lottery  Fund  (HLF)  with  effect  from  1st  April  2013.       HLF  have  said  the  following:     “One   of   these   key   alterations   to   the   grants   repair   scheme   to   be   introduced   from   01/04/2013   will   be   the   way   in   which   we   assess   financial   need.   Whilst   we   will   still   look   at   the   value   for   money   applications   offer,   we   will   no   longer   follow   the   highly   detailed   financial   needs   assessment   model   as   currently   used.   Neither   will   we   continue  with  the  blanket  policy  that  considers  chancel  repairs  where  there  is  a  lay   rector   to   be   outside   the   scope   of   grant   aid.   Instead,   we   will   take   account   of   the   financial   needs   of   the   applicant   with   regard   to   future   development   plans   for   the   long-­‐term   sustainable   use   of   the   building.   We   will   also   be   realistic   about   their   ability   to  fund  raise,  and  therefore  we  will  not  encourage  the  PCC  to  pursue  Chancel  Repair   Liability  on  occasions  where  it  is  evidently  unreasonable  for  them  to  do  so.”    


Will the  Aston  Cantlow  case  lead  to  a  flood  of  similar  claims?       No.  The  principles  involved  were  established  in  2003  when  the  House  of  Lords  gave   judgment.  We  are  not  aware  of  any  increase  in  the  number  of  chancel  repair  claims   since  then.     Is   it   right   that   the   Church   of   England   continues   to   benefit   from   this   historic   liability?     The   Church   of   England   has   financial   responsibility   for   45%   of   the   nation’s   Grade   1   listed   buildings   and   many   other   architecturally   important   churches.   70%   of   repair   bills   are   met   by   local   fundraising,   with   only   a   minority   coming   from   English   Heritage,   lottery   funds   and   other   non-­‐church   sources.   This   places   a   considerable   financial   burden  on  PCCs,  which  largely  rely  on  voluntary  giving  to  support  their  work.  Against   that   background,   the   Church   cannot   be   expected   to   forego   sources   of   funding   to   which  it  is  entitled  unless  it  receives  adequate  compensation

Examples of  enclosure  award  chancel  repair  liability  notes     This  informaKon  is  derived  from  House  of  common  Papers  30  and  44  where  they  list  the  effect  of  many  of  the  enclosure  award  from  1771  to  about  1830.  The   Acts  of  parliament  that  I  have  listed  seem  to  give  land  in  lieu  of  Kthes  to  a  lay  person  or  an  appropriator.  I  have  cross-­‐referenced  the  places  with  various  search   engines  to  find  plans  of  the  enclosure  awards.   The  places  listed  may  well  not  be  the  place  to  where  the  church  with  the  chancel  liability  is  and  a    study  of  the  relevant  Kthe  apporKonment  maybe  needed.   The  intenKon  of  the  enclosure  act  might  well  be  contradicted  by  the  award  hence  the  act    award  and  plan  have  to  be  read  together  to  ascertain  what  actually   happened.  The  Award  that  goes  with  the  enclosure  plan  is  likely  to  be  in  the  same  or  a  related  file.   These  are  only  examples  and  not  a  definiKve  list  of  parish  with  enclosure  awards  giving  land  in  lieu  of  Kthes  since  I  did  not  examine  every  parish  and  I  have   excluded  those  if  I  could  not  locate  a  plan  and  those  on  the  order  papers  which  only  had  a  Clerical  Rector,  and  there  will  be  enclosures  not  included  on  order   papers  30  and  44.     I  would  guess  that  about  95%  of  the  places  listed  will  have  the  liability  since  some  churches  will  either  be  redundant  or  have  been  rebuilt  in  a  different  place  or   without  a  chancel.  Ordinary  rebuilt  churches  almost  certainly  retain  the  liability.    There  are  many  enclosure  awards  that  at  first  glance  do  not  seem  to  have  a  plan  but  that  does  not  mean  that  the  land  is  untraceable  just  that  is  significantly   harder.    Plans  or  awards  may  well  be  unreadable  or  the  land  so  changed  that  finding  any  liability  is  impossible.   The  counKes  and  spellings  are  based  on  what  was  correct  or  known  to  the  Houses  of  Commons  in  the  late  1830’s  and  may  not  be  correct  today.   There  are  other  sources  of  chancel  repair  liability  in  the  non-­‐apporKoned  form  including  merged  land  and  Kthes  and  Rectory  Glebe  but  this  may  well  be    found   by  looking  at  Kthe  maps  and  doing  local  research.   My  church’s  website  carries  some  further  advice  h>p://

Parishes with probable chancel repair liability as a result of Enclosure Acts 1757-1771


Rev Greg Yerbury Rector of Penkridge

There are other sources of chancel repair liability in the non-apportioned form including merged land and tithes and Rectory Glebe but this may well be found by looking at tithe apportionment and doing local research. My church’s website carries some further advice

The counties and spellings are based on what was correct or known to the Houses of Commons in the late 1830’s and may not be correct today.

The enclosure awards that do not seem to have a plan but that does not mean that the land is untraceable just that is significantly harder. Plans or awards may well be unreadable or the land so changed that finding any liability is impossible. Those that are on list that are blank may well have a plan or an award but I can’t find them on the web, the other information are possible locations of an award.

I would guess that about 95% of the places listed will have the liability since some churches will either be redundant or have been rebuilt in a different place or without a chancel. Ordinary rebuilt churches almost certainly retain the liability.

The places listed may well not be the place to where the church with the chancel liability is and a study of the relevant tithe apportionment maybe needed. The intention of the enclosure act might well be contradicted by the award hence the act award and the plan have to be read together to ascertain what actually happened. If there is an enclosure plan listed it is likely the award will be in the same or related file.
