As a novice what is the most important piece of guidance you can impart regarding purchase conveyancing in Coulsdon?
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Coulsdon and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of opportunity for conflict between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For instance, the vendor, estate agent and on occasion the lender. Appointing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Coulsdon should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the legal process whose responsibility is to look after your legal interests and to protect you.
On occasion a potential adversary will try and convince you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the estate agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your conveyancer is slow. Or your financial adviser may tell you to do something that is against your conveyancers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
