Q.

Our agent has offered a conveyancing solicitor. Is it advisable to instruct this firm?

A.

Many estate agents have arrangements with solicitors where they refer conveyancing clients to them, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Can we check that the property we are buying is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas denote local areas of historical or architectural value. The advantages of these restrictions include a more attractive neighbourhood, but they can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes. Your solicitor will be able to advise further.
