You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Wombwell and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the house moving process. For example, the seller, estate agent and sometimes a bank. Selecting a law firm for your conveyancing in Wombwell is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the process whose role it is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.
On occasion a potential adversary may try and convince you that you should follow their advice. As an example, the property agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your solicitor is dragging his heels.
