Q.

Our estate agent has put forward the law firm. Is it risky to use this solicitor?

A.

If you instruct a firm referred this way, you may have the advantage of the agent being able to exert pressure on your behalf. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents may 'recommend' whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Parochial Church Councils in Elmswell must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process.

Church of England properties in the local area which may give rise to chancel liability include St John the Divine.
