Q.

What will a Knebworth conveyancing lawyer do if the property I want to buy is inside a local authority conservation area and has incongruous windows added?

A.

Your instructed solicitor is required to determine if the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have appropriate permission from the North Hertfordshire planning authority. In the absence of any consents, your Knebworth conveyancer will give you professional advice on the best alternatives, which include requesting from the appropriate local authority or indemnity insurance.
