It is not always the case and you are free to opt for whichever lawyer of your choosing for your Woodbury conveyancing. The solicitor recommended by a 3rd party adviser may not necessarily be the right lawyer, they may put forward their own conveyancing firm who are based remotely. In this instance you may not have contact with your property lawyer and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain progress reports.
