As a novice what is the most important piece of guidance you can impart regarding purchase conveyancing in Longridge?

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Longridge and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of room for friction between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. For example, the seller, property agent and even potentially your bank. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Longridge should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the legal process whose interest is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.

Every so often a third party with a vested interest will attempt to sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way.
