We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the agent told us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we use the agent's preferred lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street conveyancer who is accustomed to conveyancing in Eastleigh

It is highly unlikely the sellers are behind this. Should the owner require ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (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 own,trusted Eastleigh conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothose that will earn the estate agent a referral fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds pre-set by head office.

What type of property do your Eastleigh conveyancing quotes relate to?
