New build sellers have suggested I use a property lawyer and I've received an estimate from them. It's almost £400 less expensive than my own Armthorpe conveyancing practitioner. What's the catch?

Builders frequently have panels of conveyancers who expedite matters and who know the developer’s contract and conveyancer. As many developers offer an inducement to choose their approved conveyancing practitioner for this reason, any increased charges can be avoided and a builder will not suggest a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing delayed when they need an exchange within a tight time frame. A counter-argument for not agreeing to use the suggested conveyancer is that they may be unwilling to fight for your interests for fear of upsetting the developer. If you worry that this may be the situation you should remain with your local Armthorpe lawyer.
