I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Peckham off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Barclays. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds.

My step-mother purchased her house in Peckham eight years past. She has got married, divorced and in recent months got remarried. She now wishes to the sell the Peckham property. I suspect that she will just be asked to supply copies of her marriage certificates to the conveyancer however she is anxious it will delay the sale of the property. Should she instruct a solicitor to update the Land Registry documents for the house?
It is not absolutely necessary to update the title for the property as long as you have the evidence needed to show how the name change resulted.
Any buyer’s conveyancer will check the land registry entries and requisition evidence to prove the name change for example marriage certificates.
