I have found the property I want to buy, I have a mortgage offer, do I really need a solicitor?
A property is one of the most expensive assets you are likely to purchase. It is vital that you receive expert legal advice to make sure you are buying a property free of any problems that might prevent you selling in the future.
Your solicitor will deal with the completion of your purchase and the registration of your ownership at the Land Registry to ensure your ownership is properly recorded.
If you are buying with a mortgage loan, your lender will require your solicitor to also act for them.
