As a FTB what is the most important number one tip you can give me about purchase conveyancing in Bilston and Bradley?

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Bilston and Bradley and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of opportunity for confrontation between you and others involved in the transaction. For example, the vendor, estate agent and on occasion your mortgage company. Choosing a law firm for your conveyancing in Bilston and Bradley is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the transaction whose interest is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.

Sometimes a third party with a vested interest will attempt to sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the property agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your lawyer is slow. Or your financial adviser may advise you to do something that is against your conveyancers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
