Q.

I f I read up on handling the legal work as a buyer of a flat. Is it a smart move to carry out the all of the legal work ourselves?

A.

Technically there are no arguments at all why a seller cant adopt a DIY approach and handle the majority of the your own conveyancing unaided.

However, a conveyancing solicitor in Newmarket is familiar with a significant number of tasks such as approving contract or notifying all parties of exchange some of which require a qualified professional.

Additionaly legal firms are legally obligated to be in possession of sufficient indemnity insurance to protect you from any professional losses you encounter.
