After much negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Nafferton. My financial adviser recommended their conveyancers. I paid an upfront payment of £150.

Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend.
