Tithe Redemption Commission: Records of Ascertainments
The proportionate liability for repairs to the chancel of ancient parish churches which was to be borne by the owners of tithe rentcharges was ascertained by the Tithe Redemption Commission and recorded in the volumes in this series.
Available in microform only unless otherwise stated
Administrative / biographical background:
The duty of repairing the chancel of ancient parish churches fell on the owner of the rectorial property and was more particularly associated with the rectorial tithes. When the Tithe Act 1936 extinguished all tithe rentcharge, it became necessary to provide for liability for chancel repairs attaching to the ownership of rectorial tithe rentcharge and any vicarial rentcharge that bore this liability.
