Builders have suggested I use a conveyancer and I've sought a quote from them. It's almost £300 cheaper than my preferred Ponders End conveyancing practitioner. What's the catch?
Housebuilders frequently have lists of conveyancing practitioners who are quick and who know the developer’s contract and conveyancing practitioner. As many developers offer an incentive to choose their approved solicitor for this reason, any increased fees can be avoided and a developer won't suggest a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the transaction delayed when they demand an exchange within a tight deadline. A counter-argument for not agreeing to use the suggested conveyancer is that they may prove unwilling to fight for your interests at the risk of alienating the housebuilder. If you worry that this may be the situation you should keep with your local Ponders End conveyancing practitioner.
