This would be a great Purim shpiel spin if the legal basis wouldn't be real.
But it is. From the BBC I caught this item and thought to myself, Purim or not, can we apply this to the Muslim Waqf authorities and get them to fork over for the revuildsing of the Temple?
When Elaine Hession opened the letter she almost passed out and her partner Jonathan Hill turned "as white as a ghost". Last month the couple received a notice from the Land Registry informing them their local church had registered its right to make them contribute to the cost of repairs.Under chancel repair liability, homeowners living within the parishes of churches built before 1536 can be held liable for costs. The law dates back to the time of Henry VIII and, although actual claims are rare, in 2009 Adrian and Gail Wallbank from Warwickshire sold their home after losing an 18-year legal case and being left with costs of £250,000...Monasteries often acquired this land together with the responsibility for paying for the repair of the chancel. When Henry Vlll sold the monasteries' land, the liability to pay for the repair of the chancel remained with the land sold......Liability for chancel repair does not necessarily show on the title deeds of a house and solicitors often advise people to take out insurance against potential liability claims with premiums costing from about £50.
