Why do you need a solicitor?

The law requires that land cannot be sold unless a contract is signed by both the seller and the buyer. Deeds have to be prepared and executed, registration fees and tax paid, mortgages drawn up and monies to change hands. When the estate agent confirms that your price or offer has been accepted, this is only the start of the process.

Until a contract is signed, ownership of property does not exchange hands. A good solicitor is needed to ensure the contract is legitimate and you understand all sections especially the small print.
