Yet there are numerous people with a keen interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may recommend lawyers to appoint. Sometimes the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there is an underlying financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to choose your own lawyer. However, bear in mind that most banks specify a panel list of lawyers you have to use for the mortgage related work in your house move.
