Do I need a solicitor?
The quick and easy answer is that you don’t. There is no legal imperative for you to employ a solicitor to handle the conveyancing when dealing with property. However, it would be rather unwise for you to carry out the work yourself because you probably won’t have the skills, knowledge and experience to perform many of the complex tasks, and you won’t possess the indemnity insurance that all solicitors are obliged to carry to protect clients in the event that something goes wrong.
You need to appoint a solicitor who is experienced, proactive and focused so that you have the best chance of completing your transaction as early as possible. You should also look for such a solicitor who also offers ‘No Completion, No Fee’ protection so that you will only be invoiced for the fees once your transaction has completed successfully.

Do I need to use a property solicitor referred by our agent?
Estate agent recommendations are a not uncommon route to find a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

My husband and I are planning to buy in Foots Cray, and need to know if there are any designated conservation areas.
Conservation areas specify areas registered as being of special architectural or historic interest. The conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase should be able to provide more details and address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.
We plan to purchase a church rectory in the parish of Old Brentford. Should we get a chancel search?
Whether you are buying a property in Foots Cray or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Foots Cray, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
