This might seem like an unnecessary cost, but when you have accepted an offer on your property you will need a specialist conveyancing solicitor to carry out the legal work. It is important to instruct an experienced solicitor who will prepare the correct contract documentation according to your type of transaction. This will ensure that you are properly protected.
Your conveyancing solicitor will answer enquiries received on your behalf and make sure that these are answered in the correct way. Responses to these enquiries should be worded in a way that looks after you interests. Once these enquiries have been answered, they will deal with exchange of contracts and completion of your sale.
If a mortgage loan is involved, you will need a lawyer.
