Areas of Law / Property

I want to sell a garage that I own, which is quite separate from my house. The man who is interested in buying it says there’’s no need to use a solicitor to carry out the transaction and that it will save money.

It can be more complicated to buy or sell a garage than to buy or sell a house. Mistakes in conveyancing will probably be more costly for a buyer than for a seller, but considering the pitfalls and the comparatively small amount of money involved in obtaining professional advice it’’s hardly worth the risk. You will almost certainly need a solicitor’s help where the land isn’’t registered with the Land Registry or is leasehold. If you get it wrong you may make it difficult to sell your house in the long run.
