News & Insights // National Archives, Kew - Closure

The National Archives at Kew will be closing for maintenance work 1-16th December 2007 and 21 - 24th January 2008. This means that no full chancel repair searches can be carried out during these dates, which is likely to generate a backlog of search requests.

As an alternative to a full chancel repair search it is still more cost effective to use ChancelCheck® as the only online search to identify a potential liability down to Tithe District level. Where there is a potential risk, ChancelSure® provides market leading chancel repair liability insurance.
