    Conveyancer/solicitor for land purchase 17th May 19 at 2:49 PM

    I'm looking at buying a small plot of land with a prefab garage on it next to my house. It is up for auction. Will I need a solicitor or conveyancer? I will be paying cash for the purchase with no mortgage. The land has no legal pack and is freehold.

    Also any idea how much this will cost?

    Well depending how much you are planning to bid/pay, you might just wing it without - have you at least obtained the Land registry Title and read that?

    But if there's real money involved, then you need someone to check the deeds/title before you bid.

    Cost? Get some quotes locally. But apart from the actual solicitor's fees it willdepend how far you investigate, how many/which searches etc. Your solicior will help you decide what's essential and what the risks of skipping some searches would be.
