As I am unsure how the conveyancing process works what is the most important number one tip you can give me concerning purchase conveyancing in Danbury?
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Danbury and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of opportunity for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. For instance, the seller, property agent and sometimes the lender. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Danbury should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the process whose responsibility is to act in your best interests and to protect you.
On occasion a potential adversary will try and convince you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For 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 take action that is against your conveyancers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.
