Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Newton Abbot and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of room for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the transaction. For instance, the vendor, selling agent and sometimes a mortgage company. Selecting a solicitor for your conveyancing in Newton Abbot should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the process whose responsibility is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.

Every so often a potential adversary may attempt to sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way. As an example, the property agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your solicitor is slow. Or your financial adviser may try to convince you to do something that is against your solicitors advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.
