It is improbable the owners are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the vendors direct and explain that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to instruct your preferred Linslade conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothe ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a referral fee or meet his conveyancing figures pre-set by senior management.
