I have a reasonable understanding of the conveyancing process as a buyer of a flat - Would it be practicable to do the legals on my own?

A.

Hypothetically speaking there is absolutely no argument at all why you cannot undertake the your own conveyancing unaided. However, a conveyancer handles a significant number of functions including liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries and communicating with managing agents some of which are more safely handled with appropriate training. In addition solicitors firms are liable to be required to carry the applicable indemnity cover to safeguard you in the event of failures.

Q.

How soon should I arrange a conveyancer?

A.

If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, instructing as early as possible is better, as there are a number of tasks which may be performed immediately. Instructing your solicitor sooner can limit the risk of your transaction aborting.
