Both agents and mortgage brokers will often refer a solicitor, however, such referrals should be considered carefully, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.Q.

The conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have decided to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not imposed liability will continue to be free from liability. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.Q.
