Q.

Would it be imprudent to take care of DIY conveyancing without help.

A.

Technically there are no arguments why a home buyer cant go down that route and undertake the bulk of the conveyancing yourself. That said, a conveyancing solicitor is familiar with a large number of skilled tasks ranging from chasing replies to requisitions or collating and preparing contract and package which really need a qualified professional. Moreover solicitors are compelled to carry cover to protect you in the event of any losses you encounter.

A.

In the main, fixtures are fixed elements, such as cupboards to walls, floors or ceilings and fixtures can be more easily removed. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This can make the completion of a fixtures and fitting form necessary.
