We are familiar with residential property auction conveyancing. Usually more complicated to convey lots like building plots, are listed in property auctions which want extended exploration. Homeward Legal therefore encourage buyers to select a CQS conveyancing lawyer prior to the auction day for a thorough review.

Cotham's local area has a history of contamination from industrial or agricultural, like much of the UK. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contaminants like silage.

Is it viable to enact the conveyancing on a DIY basis on our own.

In theory there is absolutely no argument at all why a home seller shouldn't handle the legal and technical work on your own. However, a property lawyer is familiar with a large array of tasks ranging from approving enquiries on searches or interpreting management accounts which really need a qualified professional.
