Do I need a solicitor?
The quick and easy answer is that you don’t. There is no legal imperative for you to employ a solicitor to handle the conveyancing when dealing with property. However, it would be rather unwise for you to carry out the work yourself because you probably won’t have the skills, knowledge and experience to perform many of the complex tasks, and you won’t possess the indemnity insurance that all solicitors are obliged to carry to protect clients in the event that something goes wrong.
You need to appoint a solicitor who is experienced, proactive and focused so that you have the best chance of completing your transaction as early as possible. You should also look for such a solicitor who also offers ‘No Completion, No Fee’ protection so that you will only be invoiced for the fees once your transaction has completed successfully.
