The Law Society has produced a high-level guide aimed at consumers who are considering buying a flat.

The purpose of the guide is to highlight some of the most important matters for prospective buyers to consider when buying a leasehold property.

Consumers will also be able to find ’top tips for buying a flat‘ along with ’some questions to ask your solicitor’ on the website.

The Legal Ombudsman recently published helpful consumer guidance for first time buyers.
