How do we find a cheap solicitor quote to buy a house?

A.

This catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted.

Q.

Might it be prudent to carry out the legal conveyancing process without help.

A.

Theoretically speaking there are no arguments at all why a buyer cant conduct the legal work on your own.

In reality however, a property solicitor typically handles a large number of skilled tasks including approving enquiries on searches and interpreting management accounts some of which require experience. However solicitors firms need to obtain relevant insurance cover to insulate you in the event of any omissions.

Q.

Are we likely to be gazumped?

A.

Consider instructing your solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.
