Do I need a solicitor, and if so, how much will it cost?

You will need to appoint a solicitor to undertake the legal process of buying the property – this is called ‘legal conveyancing’. There are a number of factors you may want to consider when selecting your solicitor including the quality of service they offer, the speed and efficiency in progressing your purchase and their experience and knowledge. Personal recommendation is always a good place to start. It is a good idea to contact a few companies as you will get a better feel for the solicitor when you speak to them on the phone.

Legal fees will vary depending on the cost of the property. Our award-winning sister company, Emsleys Solicitors, offers legal conveyancing.
