Right to legal representation in a conveyancing transaction


It is certainly advisable not to save on legal fees by not appointing one’s own solicitor in a sale and purchase of property.  When problems or disputes arise in a transaction, not only would one incur additional costs in trying to resolve them but one may have sleepless nights. In short, it would be sen wise and ringgit foolish not to have one’s rights and interests protected in the first place by being properly advised by a solicitor.

IDEALLY, each party to a conveyancing transaction should be represented by a solicitor and a solicitor should not represent more than one party in a conveyancing transaction.

However, sometimes one party may choose not to be represented by a solicitor and forgo his rights to engage a solicitor to represent him due to either not wanting to fork out legal fees or being unable to do so. Some may be unaware that they have the right to appoint their own solicitor to represent them.
