If I buy a book about doing your own conveyancing as a buyer of a house. Is it viable to carry out the conveyancing on a DIY basis without help.?


It is certainly possible for you to handle the legal process unaided.

That said, a solicitor takes care of a large array of activities e.g. chasing notices/share certificates or collating and preparing contract and package many of which require training. In any event however, solicitors practices need to have relevant professional indemnity insurance that protects you in the event of negligence on the part of the solicitor.


What type of local searches into the risk of a flood in the Norfolk region will my Costessey property lawyer be able to do?


An important component in the conveyancing protocol involves a lawyer applying for environmental searches that offer specific information regarding Costessey flooding. In addition the Costessey conveyancing solicitor might recommend a more detailed specialist flood risk search.


To complete on our purchase ASAP, can we get a fast completion?


Experienced buyers will tell you that contacting a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor is key a fast conveyancing transaction.

Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed. Do they order searches immediately? Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?


How do I go about check whether the Costessey conservation area we are buying in is not being properly maintained?

If we plan to buy in the parish of Catton, are we advised to get a chancel search?


Whichever Costessey parish you are purchasing in, a solicitor responsible for your move may suggest a chancel search. In Costessey's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
