A solicitors firm (but not the individual) can represent both buyer and seller in a single transaction if the buyer and seller are both related if the buyer and seller are both existing clients provided that there is no conflict of interest between the buyer’s interest and the seller’s interest .
If a conflict arises, the solicitor must stop acting for both.
It must be a different person in the firm acting for the buyer and a different person in the firm acting for the seller.
