We are buying a property where the seller looks to have fitted unseemly artificial stone cladding in Fareham which I think may break nearby conservation area guidelines


Your solicitor will make enquiries to find out if your new home is located within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the necessary consent from the Fareham council. In the event that no authority consents be produced, your solicitor will recommend the best alternative e.g. seeking cover from an indemnity policy or seeking retrospective consent from the appropriate local authority.


The lender will be Accord Mortgages Ltd, is there anything I need to be aware of?

Prior to recent changes, almost all conveyancing solicitors could act for the large mortgage lenders.

Homeward Legal are able to act for the majority of UK mortgage lenders.

Will your Fareham solicitor apply for official or personal searches on my home purchase?


Your solicitor will brief you as to the most appropriate route, depending on issues like search price. For personal searches, the property solicitor may consider a local search agent for example Nationwide Personal Searches, The New Stables, Cams Hall Estate, Fareham, Hampshire, PO16 8UT Tel: 01329 826655 Fax: 01329 231527
