You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

Should I be suspicious that 3rd parties that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Stretford conveyancing company?

As with many service providers, often suggestions from connections can be worth their weight in gold. But there are numerous people with a vested interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may put forward solicitors to select. Sometimes the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to appoint your preferred lawyer. You need to be aware that some banks specify a panel list of conveyancers you are obliged to use for the lender aspect of your house move.

The financial adviser has suggested using their conveyancer for the conveyancing in Stretford - Surely it’s easier to just instruct them?

This is not necessarily the case and you are entitled to opt for whichever conveyancing practitioner you decide for your Stretford conveyancing. The conveyancing practitioner put forward by a 3rd party adviser may not always be the best conveyancing practitioner, they may put forward their preferred conveyancing firm who are based remotely. In this instance you may not have contact with your conveyancing practitioner and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain progress reports.
