Services

At some point we all find ourselves needing to enlist the services of a professional. We require an architect when building a new house or a solicitor when purchasing, and as much as we wish we didn’t have to pay out for them we do.

Here we take a closer look at the commonly used professions and provide information that should help you make more informed decisions. What are you paying for exactly and why are they necessary? What does a solicitor actually do when working on a property sale? How do I choose an architect?

In this section we aim to answer such questions along with the ‘what to ask’ and ‘top tips’ information that we like to provide here at Property 192.
