My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, yet the selling agent told us that the seller will only move forward if we appoint the agent's chosen lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Ingleby Barwick
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this demand. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Try to communicate with the owners directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to use your preferred Ingleby Barwick conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide their estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by corporate headquarters.
