There are a lot of books about conveyancing when buying and selling a flat , Might it be reasonable to do the legals without any help?
Technically, there is no argument why a home buyer cannot look after the legal process yourself.
That said, a conveyancer carries out a large array of tasks including chasing notices/share certificates and communicating with managing agents which require experience.
However solicitors practices are compelled to carry sufficient insurance to insulate you in the event of carelessness.

What’s the difference between exchange of contracts and completion?
When you exchange contracts, this means that you are agreeing to all the terms drawn up within the contract made between you on one side of the transaction, and the opposite party on the other side. It is from this point that you are legally obliged to go through with the transaction (unless you want to be subject to financial and/or legal penalties).
The completion of contracts is the point where you officially take over ownership of the property, receive the keys and can move in. All monies are transferred between the various parties and the conveyancing solicitor contacts the Land Registry to register the change of ownership to you.
