In reality however, a property solicitor is in charge of a significant number of roles from including chasing lender for comments on issues raised and registering the new title owner some of which require training. Nevertheless solicitors firms are duty bound to get sufficient professional indemnity insurance that ultimately protects you from any professional omissions.
