‘Moving in Together’ - The Key Issues for Conveyancers
It may look straightforward - clients instructing you on a purchase, or other transaction, the background to which is that they are moving in together.
But for the conveyancer this is far from a simple matter with complexities far from the mind of the client.
This makes it your duty, awkward though it may be, to spell out all of the things that can, and often do, go wrong.
