We instructed a Forest Row based firm for our conveyancing in Forest Row last week.

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Forest Row.

I opted to have a survey carried out on a house in Forest Row before instructing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend not issue a loan on such a home.
