This book is designed to give an insight into certain elements of the housebuying process in England and Wales. It illustrates potential hiccups which might be encountered along the way and the steps taken to remedy them. Knowing possible pitfalls in advance is always helpful, particularly for the first time buyer, so that you are not caught unawares. For anyone intending to buy a house or flat in the future, this book may be of great assistance in preparing you for the road ahead. Legal jargon has been kept to the absolute minimum and although the topic is a serious one, the book does contain the occasional touch of humour. If it helps to make the conveyancing procedure easier to navigate it will have achieved its objective.
