As someone unfamiliar with the Tiverton conveyancing process what’s the number one tip you can give me concerning the ownership transfer in Tiverton
Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Tiverton or throughout Devon is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of room for conflict between you and other parties involved in the house moving process. For example, the vendor, selling agent and sometimes the mortgage company. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Tiverton is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the transaction whose role it is to protect your legal interests and to keep you safe.
On occasion a potential adversary will try and persuade you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the property agent may claim to be assisting by claiming that your solicitor is slow. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do take action that is contrary to your solicitors advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.

Developers normally have panels of conveyancers who are quick and who know the seller’s paperwork and property lawyer. As many developers offer an inducement to select a preferred conveyancing practitioner for this reason, any increased cost can be avoided and a developer will not put forward a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the transaction stall when they demand an exchange within a tight deadline. A counter-argument for not opting for the suggested lawyer is that they may be unwilling to fight for your interests for fear of alienating the housebuilder.
