Will I need a Homebuyer Report for this home purchase?

Q.

Should we use a property lawyer offered by my estate agent in Otford?

A.

If you choose a solicitor referred through this route, you may have the benefit of the agent's willingness to exert pressure on a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.
