Q.

I have been reading about handling the legal side of home moving as a buyer and seller of a flat , Might it be sensible to do the all of the legal work on my own?

A.

Theoretically speaking there is no reason at all why a buyer cant engage in the legal and technical work unaided. That said, a conveyancing solicitor carries out a large array of functions e.g. drafting contracts or the Land Registry formalities most of which require a qualified professional. Additionally legal firms are required to get professional indemnity insurance that ultimately protects you from any professional carelessness.

Q.

My mortgage lender is Irish Permanent, is there anything I need to be aware of?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating greater conveyancing costs for property purchasers. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of many lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.
