DIY conveyancing is possible if you are willing to deal with the large amounts of paper work and legal jargon, by doing it yourself you may well save yourself a fair amount of money. However, you should think about doing conveyancing yourself very carefully; it is a complicated and lengthy process and you could end up in difficult situations if it is not done properly. Few people involved in buying or selling a property undertake DIY conveyancing for several reasons:
- Mortgage lenders will often ask that you use a solicitor in order to protect their own interests.
- There is a risk of things going wrong, which could cost you a lot of money.
- Solicitors will be insured, so any mistakes they make will be covered.
- The processes involved in some properties, such as leasehold properties, are very complex
