How do I get a cheap solicitor in Ravensthorpe to own a house?


Many online and high street law firms advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees will be included in small print.

Handling the legal work without instructing a Ravensthorpe solicitor is becoming possible as a seller of a house. Would it be shrewd ?


Legally speaking there are no arguments why a seller shouldn't undertake the legal work on your own.

That said, a solicitor typically handles a large array of activities e.g. approving contract or collating and preparing contract and package most of which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified professional. Nevertheless legal firms always take out appropriate indemnity insurance in order to protect you from any professional failures.
