We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent informed us that the seller will only go ahead if we instruct the agent's recommended conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor with experience of conveyancing in North Hykeham

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this ultimatum. If they require ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to appoint your preferred North Hykeham conveyancing firm - rather thanthe ones that will earn the estate agent a kickback or achieve conveyancing thresholds demanded by senior management.
