Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like chairs?

A.

Q.

The web is full of a multitude of useful resources about DIY conveyancing such as Buying, Selling and Letting Property by David Hampshire . That being the case, do I want to use a conveyancing solicitor in Rossendale ?

A.

Hypothetically there is absolutely no argument why a seller cant look after the legal work without assistance.

Despite that solicitors must carry insurance to safeguard you in the event of errors made by the lawyer.
