I am purchasing a garden flat in Holmrook. Can I do my own conveyancing?
Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Holmrook you will have to appoint a solicitor on your mortgage company's conveyancing panel to look after their interests. Most people therefore find it easier to let the solicitor act for them and the lender. Furthermore there is minimal cost savings to be made in you doing conveyancing for yourself and another lawyer conducting the conveyancing for the lender.

Do I need to be concerned by brokers that I am dealing with are recommending an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Holmrook conveyancing practice?
As with lots of professional services, often referrals from connections can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are lots of parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks may put forward lawyers to retain. Sometimes the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there behind the scenes commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You have the discretion to choose your own lawyer. You need to be aware that most mortgage providers have an approved list of solicitors you have to use for the lender related work in your conveyancing.
My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, but the selling agent told us that the seller will only go ahead if we instruct their preferred conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a high street solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Holmrook
It is unlikely the vendors are behind this. Should the seller require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is counter productive. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and explain that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to appoint your preferred Holmrook conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn the estate agent a kickback or hit his conveyancing targets pre-set by head office.
