We're FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the property agent advised that the seller will only proceed if we instruct their chosen conveyancers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street solicitor who is accustomed to conveyancing in Brighton

It is highly unlikely the owners are behind this. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Try to communicate with the owners directly and explain that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to appoint your own,trusted Brighton conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn the estate agent a referral fee or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by head office.

I am planning to sell my garage which is on a separate legal title at HMLR asking for 30k, to clear debts. There is a mortgage with Yorkshire BS. Is it possible for you to recommend a cheapish conveyancing practitioner as the conventional £500-600 diminishes the return somewhat. Although I live in Brighton I dont need to instruct a Brighton conveyancer.

The purpose of this site is restricted to being a directory service for lawyers who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Yorkshire BS in certain locations for example Brighton . Our intention is not to recommend any particular conveyancing practitioner.
