Would arranging a home buyers survey be necessary when we are purchasing a property in Gorleston?
It is heavily suggested that the majority of buyers book a surveyor to carry out a survey. There can be a range of issues that have a negative impact on a property, including unsafe chimney circulation, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.
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.

Our estate agent in Gorleston has referred the lawyer which they often use. Must I instruct this firm?
Your agent may recommend a solicitor, however, these referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.
If I am purchasing near parsonage land in Gorleston, do we need a chancel search?
Some owners in Gorleston can be required to fund repairs to nearby church property. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including parish archives.
How soon should I instruct a conveyancer?
In simple terms, the faster you instruct the better. Some sources suggest waiting before instruction until a chain is completed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.
