There are no arguments why a home seller cant adopt a DIY approach and conduct your own conveyancing without a trained Oxfordshire conveyancing solicitor. However, a property lawyer handles a huge number of functions e.g. chasing any missing replies/clarifications to enquiries and investigating title documents some of which require the relevant training. Even more importantly do it yourself conveyancers take huge risks in operating without the appropriate professional indemnity insurance which qualified lawyers are bound to carry.
