Both agents and mortgage brokers will push a conveyancer. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may decide to recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Should I get a home surveyor to examine our property purchase?

It is suggested that most Uxbridge buyers book a house survey. There can be many concerns that can negatively affect a property, which are not included in your mortgage lender's valuation, including severe weathering and subsidence.
