Might it be a smart move to carry out the legal conveyancing process ourselves.
It can certainly possible for you to handle the your own conveyancing yourself. The truth is however that a Selston property solicitor is in charge of a huge array of actions such as applying for office copies of lease and other land reg docs and checking for any restrictive covenants most of which really need experience. AT any rate legal firms are required by their regulator to obtain professional indemnity insurance to protect you in the event of failures.
Are the doctors/dentists/schools oversubscribed in the area I want to move to?
Although your conveyancing solicitor may have some personal knowledge of these critical factors, they are not part of the conveyancing process, so will not form part of the contract.
If aspects such as how likely you’ll get into a surgery or school are important to you, it is worth factoring this in at an early stage when you are researching the areas into which you want to move. You can also glean some facts from the estate agent representing properties where you want to move, too. You might also like to contact the surgeries or schools for further information.
