Doing ones own conveyancing without the assistance of a Waterbeach lawyer is becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a house , but would it be a good idea ?

There are no reasons at all why a seller shouldn't complete the legal process yourself. That said, a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a significant number of actions including approving contract and dealing with requisition on os1 many of which need experience. Nonetheless legal firms are obligated to be in possession of suitable insurance to protect you from any professional losses you encounter.

Q.

I am purchasing with Barnsley Building Society - is there anything I need to know?

A.

Until recently, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. A small number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. We, however, are able to act on behalf of the vast majority of mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.
