We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent told us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we instruct their preferred lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor used to conveyancing in Otley

We suspect that the owner is not behind this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated purchaser is counter productive. Try to communicate with the vendors directly and explain that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Otley conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds demanded by senior management.
