Your property solicitor will establish if the property is affected by a conservation area and whether any modifications have requisite consent from the local authority.

Q.

We have found an increasing number very helpful documents about by passing the solicitor. Do we necessarily need to spend money on a Havant solicitor ?

A.

There are no reasons why a home buyer should not complete the legal and technical work without a trained conveyancing solicitor in Havant. In reality however, a conveyancer is familiar with a significant number of tasks including raising additional enquiries and apportioning service charges some of which need experience. Above all DIY conveyancers do not have the applicable indemnity cover which qualified solicitors are required to possess.

The Law Lords decision in a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must cover the cost of church repairs. Several sources are used to determine liability in Havant, including local maps. Havant ecclesiastical properties include St Faith.

Q.

Should we opt for a property solicitor referred by our estate agent?

A.

If you choose a solicitor referred through this route, 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, it may be the case that the agent recommends the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
