Builders have put forward a solicitor and I've received a quote from them. They are nearly three hundred pounds cheaper than my family Ealing property lawyer. What's the catch?
Developers normally have lists of conveyancing practitioners who are quick and who know the seller’s contract and solicitor. As many developers offer an inducement to use a preferred lawyer for this reason, any increased charges can be avoided and a builder won't recommend a conveyancing factory and run the risk of having the conveyancing delayed when they demand an exchange inside a month. A counter-argument for not agreeing to use the suggested solicitor is that they may prove hesitant to fight for your interests at the risk of upsetting the sellers. Where you have concerns that this may be the case you should keep with your local Ealing conveyancing practitioner.
