I have read about handling the legal work as a buyer of a maisonette. Would it be reasonable to take care of all of the legal work without any help?
Should you want to try, you can conceivably look after the bulk of the legal and technical work without a qualified lawyer in Sandwich .
The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor is familiar with a huge number of roles from including liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries and apportioning service charges many of which are better done by someone with a qualified professional. Even more importantly amateur lawyers do not have appropriate indemnity insurance which all solicitors firms are made responsible to be covered by.

If I’m renting out rooms in my house, do I need to appoint a solicitor?
No, you don’t, because there is no legal imperative for you to do so. However, it’s not as straightforward as simply leasing out a room to a renter because there are certain provisions that must be met in order to protect you as the renter and the person renting the room.
This depends on the room and where it is in the property, state of the plumbing, insurance, and a number of other factors. You’ll also need to draw up a tenancy agreement to ensure demarcation and rights for both parties. While you won’t necessarily need a solicitor involved, it’s worth contacting a letting agency who will have the experience and knowledge to ensure you have everything in place. Be aware that any advice you seek from professionals may come with a fee, so it would be worth shopping around first.
