Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Carmarthen and elsewhere in Ammanford is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of room for conflict between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the vendor, estate agent and sometimes a lender. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Carmarthen should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the transaction whose interest is to act in your best interests and to protect you.

Every so often a potential adversary will try and convince you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For example, the property agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your lawyer is slow. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do take action that is contrary to your conveyancers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
