Your local church could force you to pay for expensive repairs, under a little-known ancient law. The rules mean that if your parish church was built before 1536, then any time it needs repairs, the church can demand that local people foot the bill. The costs could run into tens of thousands of pounds - and destroy the value of your property.

So are you at risk? And how can you protect yourself.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
