If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Hamworthy what would it be?
We would encourage you not to go for the cheapest Hamworthy conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to RBS where a lease does not satisfy these requirements. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to Hamworthy.
