This is not necessarily the case and you are entitled to instruct whichever lawyer you prefer for your Gorton conveyancing. The property lawyer put forward by a 3rd party adviser may not necessarily be the best property lawyer, they may recommend their own conveyancing firm who are based far away. In this instance you may not have contact with your conveyancer and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain updates.
