Q.

The estate agent we're using in Abergele has put forward the solicitors firm which they often use. Must I use this firm?

A.

An agent in Abergele can influence a solicitor they refer a lot of work to, and can therefore exert pressure on your behalf, however, such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as some agents choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

If we are buying in the parish of Huish, will we need a chancel search?

Your solicitor might recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the building being bought is found.

Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
