As is the case with many professional services, often suggestions from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. But there are lots of players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks may suggest lawyers to instruct. Sometimes these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there is an underlying commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to select your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that many mortgage providers specify a panel list of conveyancers you must use for the lender aspect of your home move.
My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, but the selling agent advised that the seller will only go ahead if we appoint their preferred lawyers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Brandesburton
It is unlikely the vendors are behind this. Should the vendor require ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to appoint your own,trusted Brandesburton conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will give their negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing thresholds demanded by corporate headquarters.
