As someone not used to conveyancing in Lancashire what is the number one tip you can impart for the ownership transfer in Lancashire
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Lancashire and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of opportunity for conflict between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. E.g., the vendor, property agent and on occasion the lender. Appointing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Lancashire is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the transaction whose role it is to protect your best interests and to protect you.
Every so often a third party with a vested interest will attempt to convince you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the property agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your lawyer is slow. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do take action that is contrary to your lawyers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
