As with lots of professional services, often suggestions from connections can be most helpful. Nevertheless there are numerous players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies may put forward conveyancers to use. Sometimes these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there is an underlying commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to select your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that many banks operate an approved list of conveyancers you have to use for the lender related work in your house move.
