In theory, there is no reason at all why a seller should not carry out the legal process on your own. In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor juggles a long list of actions such as chasing lender for comments on issues raised and notifying all parties of exchange most of which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified solicitor. Additionally solicitors firms are liable to be required to carry professional indemnity insurance to protect you from any errors.

The amount of time required to transact property is not wholly predictable. This is dependent on a broad set of issues, for example, matters where a property has a mortgage.

Homeward Legal strongly recommend that all purchasers in Upminster book a building survey. Buyers should be aware that there are many concerns that affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, such as chimney defects.Q.
An integral part of the due diligence for buyers includes carrying out searches of the Havering authority to determine conservation area status and the existence of consent for any changes. In the event that no local authority consents be produced, your solicitor will advise you of the alternatives which may include obtaining an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective consent from the planning authority.
