Why do you need a property solicitor to help you move home?

October 23 2017

Moving to a new property is recognised as one of the most stressful things you are likely to encounter. With so many different boxes to tick and things to be checked it can seem like a never-ending process at times. Using our property solicitors in Leeds can help to take some of the stress out of moving home as well as ensure that all legal aspects have been covered. These are three of the main reasons why you should use a reliable law firm to help you:

1.       Property solicitors are skilled in this area

Whilst it is possible to carry out conveyancing yourself, this is not recommended as there are many potential pitfalls. Entrusting a property lawyer to oversee the exchange of contracts as well as completion, means that someone that is trained and experienced in this area will be able to spot any issues and deal with them on your behalf. This means that you can have peace of mind that all the legal requirements have been met.

2.       The amount of time and money at stake

 It is also important to enlist professional help due to the amount of time and money which is at stake. Even a small house or flat represents a large financial investment. Using someone qualified in this area means that there will be no problems further down the line as a result of not spotting them yourself.

3.       To be offered a mortgage

Finally, it is beneficial to use a property solicitor as some banks or lenders may not be willing to offer a mortgage if the conveyancing has not been carried out by a trained professional.
