Q.

Doing your own conveyancing without the help of a Radyr conveyancer looks to be possible as a buyer of a house but would it really be shrewd ?

A.

There are no arguments why a buyer cant apply this approach and complete the legal and technical work without a skilled Radyr conveyancing solicitor. That said, a conveyancer is in charge of a significant number of skilled tasks e.g. checking contracts or identifying conservation area breaches many of which require adequate training. Above all have a go conveyancers do not have sufficient insurance cover which all lawyers are obliged to carry.
