As someone unfamiliar with conveyancing in Iver what’s the number one tip you can impart for the legal transfer of property in Iver

Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. For example, the vendor, selling agent and sometimes your mortgage company. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Iver is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the legal process whose interest is to protect your legal interests and to protect you.
Every so often a potential adversary will try and persuade you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the estate agent may claim to be assisting by claiming that your lawyer is dragging his heels. Or your financial adviser may try to convince you to do take action that is against your conveyancers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.
