Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to appoint your preferred Dymock conveyancing firm - rather thanthe ones that will provide the estate agent a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by senior management.
