Does your firm manage property auction conveyancing in Sunbury?

What will the Sunbury conveyancing solicitor do if the building we hope to buy is inside a local authority conservation area and has unapproved doors installed?

A.

Your instructed solicitor is required to see if the property is within a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the essential consent from the Elmbridge council.
