It must be right when it is said that the first contact with the law for many people is when buying or selling a house. It is bewildering why this is so adversarial in nature and why, if the Law Society wishes to overhaul its own house, then the method of selling property is not changed and simplified.
Surely most people believe that if an offer is accepted, it should be binding on both parties. Perhaps the drop in abortive conveyancing fees may have some bearing on this vested interest?
