DIY Conveyancing – Should I do conveyancing myself?

    I’m looking to buy a small pice of land (under an acre) sold off by a water company with an old redundant water Tower on it, no building. Access through rights of access and easement rights. A very small cost for the land so was looking to go diy on the conveyancing to keep costs down. Would you think advisable to do so?

      It’s a difficult decision, I’d find it very annoying if I has to spend around £1000 legal fees for buying a small piece of land.

      The legal side of buying land is easier than selling, but DIY conveyancing can still be pretty stressful. I’d recommend talking with the seller and their estate agents, see what they have to say/recommend (it would be nice to talk to the sellers solicitor/conveyancer, but they won’t speak with you as it may be considered a conflict of interest).

    i would like to remove a name from my title deeds. The mortgage is paid and it is leasehold. Can i do this myself? if not can i get a quote? thanks

      I would recommend doing it through a solicitor, it won’t be that expensive. You can contact the land registry directly, and they should be able to tell you more.

      If you try and DIY it you’ll still need to pay Land Registry fees, and you’ll have to re-register the property in your sole name – far easier and less stressful to leave it in the hands of the professionals. If it’s not done correctly, it might cause problems if/when you come to sell the property in the future.
