Q.

Bookshops and the web have many useful documents about doing your own legal work. Do we need to spend money on a property solicitor in Shildon ?

A.

There are no arguments why a seller cannot conceivably do the your own conveyancing without conveyancer in Shildon. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor in Shildon takes care of a huge array of functions such as approving enquiries on searches and apportioning ground rents most of which really need a skilled professional. More importantly amateur lawyers will not have relevant indemnity insurance which qualified solicitors will carry.

Can we avoid paying out for stamp duty?

A.

We strongly advise against any stamp duty avoidance. These schemes are often uneconomical and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the

When in the conveyancing process do I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to handle our purchase?
