Q.

Should we make use of a property solicitor suggested by the estate agent?

A.

It is commonplace for agents in Niton to endorse a law firm to handle your conveyancing, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Should we get a building surveyor to look into our Wroxham home purchase?

A.

It is suggested that home buyers in Wroxham order a RICS survey. There can be a range of problems that can negatively affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on. These include subsidence.

Q.

Do any designated conservation areas in Wroxham have the potential to impact the residence we are buying?

A.

The local areas in or near Wroxham will include a range of conservation areas. Living in a conservation area can mean confidence that property will retain its value, but the restrictions can add to maintenance costs. A conveyancing solicitor will discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

In 3 months we are going to move from our detached house in Wroxham into a bigger building in Hingham what is the right point to instruct a house removal firm?
