Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers 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 intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to instruct your preferred Geddington conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a referral fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds set by head office.
