You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Farnham Common and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of room for confrontation between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. For instance, the seller, property agent and on occasion the mortgage company. Selecting a solicitor for your conveyancing in Farnham Common is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the legal process whose responsibility is to look after your legal interests and to protect you.
There is a worrying ongoing adversarial element to conveyancing- someone has to be at fault for the process taking so long. We recommend that you your first instinct should be to trust your solicitor ahead of the other parties when it comes to the legal assignment of property.
