My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the agent has warned us that the owners will only proceed if we use their chosen solicitors as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Clophill
It is unlikely the owners are behind this. If they require ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Try to communicate with the sellers directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to instruct your preferred Clophill conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide the estate agent a kickback or meet his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by head office.
