Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing in Penrith?

A.

Several firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees may be added into the terms of engagement. Excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Extra fees included in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and clearly defined. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We have found a multitude of manuals all about how to do DIY conveyancing such as Buying, Selling and Letting Property by David Hampshire. In which case, do I have to use Penrith property lawyer ?

A.

There is no argument why a home buyer cant apply this approach and conceivably do the bulk of the legal process without the help of Penrith conveyancing solicitor. That said, a lawyer carries out a significant number of actions e.g. chasing retention releases and dealing with requisition on os1 many of which are better done by someone with a skilled professional. More importantly amateur lawyers will not be covered by relevant indemnity cover which practicing lawyers are liable to be required to be covered by.
