Developers have put forward a property lawyer and I've sought an estimate from them. It's almost £300 less expensive than my local Haslington property lawyer. What's the catch?
Housebuilders often have lists of property lawyers who are quick and who know the developer’s contract and conveyancer. Plenty of developers offer an incentive to use their approved conveyancer for this reason, any increased fees can be avoided and a builder won't put forward a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing stall when they need an exchange within a tight time frame. The argument for not agreeing to use the recommended solicitor is that they may prove hesitant to 'push' your interests at the risk of upsetting the developer. Where you have concerns that this may be the case you should stick with your local Haslington solicitor.
