Q.

Having heard about the widespread flooding last year in the Midlands we are wondering if conveyancing searches aren't thorough enough?

Environmental searches applied for by the conveyancer in Knowle should include the far more thorough flood search if required.

Conservation areas specify streets and neighbourhoods of architectural or historic interest. Knowle itself is named as a conservation area. Your conveyancing solicitor will provide more details.

Q.

Should I use a law firm referred by our estate agent?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often recommend a conveyancing solicitor, however, such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as some agents choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

A.
