Q.

The internet is full of a plethora of very helpful manuals on the subject of how to do DIY conveyancing. Do I really need to spend money on a Buntingford property lawyer ?

A.

Should you want to try you can conceivably engage in the greater part of the legal process without the services of a trained Buntingford lawyer. Of course lawyers would suggest that this is a hazardous idea as do it yourself conveyancers will be working without applicable cover which practicing solicitors practices must pay for.

Q.

My estate agent has put forward the solicitors firm. Must we use this firm?

A.

It is not uncommon for agents to recommend one or more conveyancing firms. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a restored chapel in the parish of St Albans St Michael. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

A lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Buntingford's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a building where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
