A.

The regions located near Chingford will include numerous areas of historical merit registered as conservation areas. The local council will be able to advise further about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

Is it practical to do the conveyancing myself ourselves.

A.

Conceivably there is absolutely no reason why a home buyer cant adopt a DIY approach and conduct legal process unaided. That said, a conveyancer juggles a significant number of actions e.g. liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries and handling retentions many of which need a qualified professional. Despite that firms and their solicitors are required to pay for professional indemnity insurance that ultimately protects you from any professional oversights.
