On occasion these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there behind the scenes financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are free to appoint your own conveyancer. However, bear in mind that most lenders specify a panel list of conveyancers you must use for the mortgage aspect of your house move.
