Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of opportunity for confrontation between you and others involved in the house moving process.

Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in West Ham is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE party in the legal process whose interest is to look after your legal interests and to protect you.

On occasion a third party with a vested interest will try and persuade you that you should follow their advice. As an example, the selling agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your solicitor is dragging his heels. Or your financial adviser may tell you to do something that is contrary to your solicitors advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
