As someone clueless as to the Bilborough conveyancing process what’s the number one tip you can impart for the legal transfer of property in Bilborough
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Bilborough or throughout Nottinghamshire is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of room for conflict between you and other parties involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the vendor, estate agent and on occasion the bank. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Bilborough is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the legal process whose role it is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.
Sometimes a third party with a vested interest will attempt to convince you that you should follow their advice. For example, the selling agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your conveyancer is wrong. Or your financial adviser may advise you to do take action that is against your solicitors recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
