I own a flat worth £300,000. I have a mortgage on the flat

Resolved Question:

I own a flat worth £300,000. I have a mortgage on the flat of £150,000. I wish to sell the flat to my daughter for the mortgage value of £150,000 and gift her the rest of the value.
Do we each need a lawyer or can one act for the whole transaction

1. There is nothing here to prevent one solicitor acting for both yourself and your daughter in this transaction. Essentially, there just needs to be a conveyance of the flat from one party to the other. In the circumstances, the solicitor can advise one or both of you to seek independent advice if the lawyer decides this is necessary. However, there is no rule of practice or conduct which prevents one lawyer acting for you both.
