If the leak is from the faucet handle then cartridge should be replaced or if the leak is from the aerator, then seats or springs should be replaced. If the leak persists, the nuts should be tightened. Then you can get rid of the leaks and you can go ahead.

In some cases of replacing a bathroom faucet, the handle does not align properly and appears a little skewed. If this is the case, lift the handle in a straight upward direction, twirl slightly in the right direction and compress it down. The part of the valve that the handle sits is mounted in accordance to the handle.
