As someone unfamiliar with conveyancing in Writtle what is the number one tip you can give me for the legal transfer of property in Writtle
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Writtle and elsewhere in Essex is an adversarial process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of opportunity for conflict between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. For example, the seller, selling agent and on occasion the mortgage company. Appointing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Writtle is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the transaction whose role it is to look after your best interests and to keep you safe.
On occasion a potential adversary will try and convince you that you should follow their advice. For example, the estate agent may claim to be assisting by claiming that your lawyer is wrong. Or your mortgage broker may try to convince you to do take action that is contrary to your lawyers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
