Technically speaking there are no reasons at all why a home mover cant undertake the legal process on your own. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor in Purfleet typically handles a large number of skilled tasks ranging from chasing deeds and DS1 documents and apportioning service charges many of which really need a skilled professional. In any event however, lawyers are required by their regulator to pay for indemnity insurance that protects you in the event of any losses you encounter.
