Summary: A conveyancer will ensure contracts are written to protect the interests of all parties
A solicitor or conveyancer usually conducts the conveyancing process, but it is possible (although difficult) to do it yourself as long as you are not taking out a mortgage.
Some clients think four weeks is a long time, but there is an awful lot to do in that time: for example, instruct a conveyancer, complete the initial paperwork, obtain legal advice, sign all the legal documents, pay your deposit, provide proof of funds, apply for and receive a mortgage (including the valuation) and obtain a set of search results.
If you are selling a property, it is important to keep your property attractive to potential buyers, ensuring that your conveyancer has all your property details and is ready to go.
It's a good idea to ask your conveyancer or solicitor to check the small print so you can avoid any nasty shocks.
