My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, yet the property agent told us that the vendor will only move forward if we use the agent's preferred conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Cubitt Town
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this request. Should the owner require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is not the way to achieve this. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and explain that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to instruct your own,trusted Cubitt Town conveyancing firm - rather thanthe ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing figures set by head office.
