Q.

Doing your own conveyancing without the aid of a Kimbolton conveyancer looks to be possible as a seller of a home. Would it be foolhardy ?

A.

Technically, there is no reason at all why a home buyer should not conduct legal process on your own.

In any event however, solicitors practices are bound to carry cover to insulate you from any professional carelessness made by the lawyer.

Q.

My mortgage lender is Mortgage Express - is there anything I need to check?

A.

Traditionally, almost all conveyancing solicitors could act for the large mortgage lenders. Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in greater legal costs for house purchasers if their lawyer cannot act for the lender. Homeward Legal, however, will act for many lenders in the UK so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's conveyancing fees.
