Am I right to be concerned about 3rd parties that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a web based conveyancing firm rather than a local Wanstead Flats conveyancing practice?

As is the case with many professional services, often suggestions from relatives can be very helpful. Nevertheless there are many people with a vested interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks may suggest lawyers to select. Sometimes the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there exists a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are free to choose your own lawyer. However, bear in mind that the majority of lenders operate an approved list of lawyers you have to use for the mortgage related work in your house move.
