My husband and I are new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, but the agent advised that the vendor will only proceed if we instruct the agent's preferred solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’.

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to appoint your preferred Warsash conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will give the estate agent a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds set by senior management.

Why do Warsash conveyancing charges are higher for leasehold and freehold properties?
When purchasing a leasehold property there is more work involved purely due to the fact that usually there are further parties involved in the form of the freeholder and/or Management Agents. As part of a lawyers enquiries they will check that all ground rent and service charges are paid up to date amongst other general leasehold matters. For this reason, the Sellers lawyers usually have to refer to the freeholder or Managing Agent for their replies to our questions. This may be time consuming and beyond the lawyers control
