Conflict of interest

A solicitor or conveyancer with a conflict of interest can't act for a client because they aren't or risk not being able to give fully independent advice. The conflict may stem from the fact that they have a stake in the deal or are already representing another party that's involved.

In other words if you ask a solicitor to act for you on a property you are buying and they are already representing the seller, they will most likely say they can't represent you because of a conflict of interest.

With In-Deed we always undertake a check to ensure that we are not acting for the counterparty (i.e. the buyer or seller). If we are then we will ensure that the lawyer acting for you is from a different legal firm so that no conflict can arise.
