Would it be wise to take care of legal conveyancing process on my own.

A.

If you are so inclined attempt to do this you can conduct if not all of the legal process without instructing conveyancing solicitor in Hexham .

More importantly amateur lawyers do not have the correct indemnity cover that all legal practices are required to be covered by.

Q.

Accord Mortgages Ltd will be our lender - what do I need to know?

A.

Prior to recent changes, almost all conveyancing solicitors could act for the large mortgage lenders. Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean higher conveyancing costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal, though, will act for all large mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.
