Do I need a Conveyancing Solicitor to buy a house?

When buying or selling property you will need to satisfy the legal process for the transfer of ownership. As this involves the execution of a house and land contract and crucial conveyancing steps we recommend to leave it in the hands of a trusted conveyancing solicitor.

If you have recently signed a contract or are looking to buy or sell soon consider that should you make an error with your conveyancing you may cause a delayed settlement whereby you will be required to pay default interest or enable the party on the other side to terminate the contract at your expense and sue you for breach of contract.
