Do I need to be suspicious about estate agents that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Rottingdean conveyancing company?

As with many professional services, often referrals from relatives can be worth their weight in gold. Nevertheless there are lots of people with a vested interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may suggest solicitors to select. On occasion these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there may be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You have the right to select your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that many mortgage providers operate an approved list of solicitors you have to use for the lender aspect of your transaction.
