Worryingly, many property lawyers are extremely listless adding huge amounts of pressure to selling a home.

We only ever work with conveyancing solicitors who will always attempt to communicate by phone and email to the whole property chain (sequence of buyers and sellers) . Additionally , our conveyancing solicitors are picked because they use new document and form assembly systems to complete the legal work fast.


Doing your own conveyancing without a property lawyer in Whitley Bay appears to be becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a house , but would it be really be a money saving idea ?

The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor handles a huge array of roles from e.g. checking redemption statements and apportioning service charges some of which require adequate training. Above all else DIY conveyancers will be working without suitable insurance which qualified solicitors are made responsible to have.
