Q.

The estate agent has put forward a firm of solicitors whom they usually use. Must I instruct this firm?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a common practice path for purchasers to get a solicitor. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

I have found a number of very helpful handbooks on the subject of how to do DIY conveyancing for example Conveyancing Handbook by Frances Silverman. Do I have to use Perry Barr property lawyer ?

A.

In theory, there is no reason at all why a home buyer should not look after the legal work on your own. The truth is however that a property lawyer in Perry Barr juggles a significant number of skilled tasks including chasing deeds and DS1 documents or identifying conservation area breaches some of which really need a skilled professional. Nonetheless legal practices are bound to carry applicable professional indemnity insurance to insulate you in the event of any failures.
