We have found an increasing number very helpful guidebooks giving details on how to do DIY conveyancing such as How to Buy Your First Home (And How to Sell it Too) by Phil Spencer . That being the case, do I need to instruct a Croston conveyancer for my move?


In theory there is absolutely no reason why a seller cant embark on the conveyancing unaided. However, a property lawyer in Croston takes care of a significant number of tasks ranging from approving contract or locating planning docs some of which are more safely handled with appropriate a skilled professional.


Will I need a chancel liability search when my partner and I are buying in Croston?
