What is the first thing I need to know concerning purchase conveyancing in Mancot?
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Mancot or throughout England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of room for conflict between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For instance, the seller, property agent and sometimes the mortgage company. Selecting a solicitor for your conveyancing in Mancot should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the process whose interest is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.
