Do it yourself conveyancing without a conveyancing solicitor in Stotfold appears to be becoming possible as a buyer of a maisonette but would it actually be a false economy ?

A.

In reality however, a lawyer is familiar with a long list of functions such as chasing notices/share certificates and apportioning service charges most of which really need a qualified professional. AT any rate lawyers are compelled to take out the applicable indemnity cover to protect you in the event of errors on the part of the solicitor.
