This issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'.

Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.Q.
A critical component in the legal process of buying a property involves your lawyer making an application for environmental searches that set out information with regard to Sandbanks historical flood risk.Q.
Conservation areas define streets and neighbourhoods of historic or architectural significance. Living in a conservation area can mean preservation of an area's historic charm, but the restrictions create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities. A lawyer will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.
The regular legal procedure is to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environmental, Tin Search and Clay Search as well as any specific searches e.g. a Contaminated land Search.Q.

There are no reasons why you cant undertake the legal work without the help of Sandbanks solicitor.
The truth is however that a lawyer juggles a large number of roles from including approving enquiries on searches or the Land Registry formalities many of which are more safely handled with appropriate adequate training. More importantly have a go conveyancers take huge risks in operating without the correct indemnity insurance that solicitors are required by the Law Society to have.
