My estate agent has put forward the solicitors firm. Must we use this firm?

It is not uncommon for agents to recommend one or more conveyancing firms. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
