My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, but the selling agent has warned us that the seller will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's chosen conveyancers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a high street solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Bolton

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this request. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Bolton conveyancing firm - as opposed tothe ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds set by senior management.
