Q.

Why does Long Sutton conveyancing take so long?

A.

The legal work undertaken to transfer a house or flat in Long Sutton could be exposed to significant delays even in the best of circumstances. The causes may unhappily be out of your solicitor's control. Homeward Legal seek to minimise their cost by driving the sale or purchase forward. Reasons for delay can include waiting for a mortgage offer.

I have a reasonable understanding of doing ones own conveyancing as a buyer and seller of a flat - Might it be viable to take care of the all of the legal work ourselves?
