I have found a multitude of resources giving details on doing the legal work yourself such as Buying a House: A Step-by-step Guide to Buying Your Ideal Home (How to) by Adam Walker . In which case, do I need to instruct a Smethwick property solicitor ?


There are no arguments why a buyer should not conduct bulk of the legal and technical work without solicitor in Smethwick. The truth is however that a solicitor in Smethwick takes care of a huge number of jobs such as approving completion statements or the Land Registry formalities many of which really need the relevant training.

Fundamentally have a go conveyancers are taking risks without acceptable indemnity insurance that every lawyers are required to possess.
