Plenty of developers offer an inducement to select their approved conveyancing practitioner for this reason, any increased cost can be avoided and a developer won't recommend a conveyancing factory and run the risk of having the conveyancing stall when they want exchange within a tight time frame. A counter-argument for not opting for the recommended solicitor is that they may be hesitant to fight for your interests for fear of alienating the sellers. If you worry that this may be the situation you should stick with your local Hampton Wick lawyer.
