As is the case with many service providers, often suggestions from connections can be very helpful. Nevertheless there are many parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks may suggest conveyancers to select. Sometimes the conveyancers 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 are at liberty to appoint your own conveyancer. Don't forget that most mortgage providers operate an approved list of conveyancers you must use for the mortgage related work in your home move.
