Q.

My local agent has put forward a law firm. Will it be easier to instruct this firm?

A.

Many agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer work. Such referrals should be thoroughly considered, as an agent may decide to recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Is it important that we get a chancel liability search if we are buying in Atherstone on the same street as a church built in the 1500s?

The outcome of a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must fund church repairs.

This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Atherstone ecclesiastical properties include St. Mary.
