My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, but the property agent has warned us that the owners will only issue a contract if we use their chosen lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Elmers End

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this ultimatum. Should the owner require ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they understand (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to use your preferred Elmers End conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide their estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing figures set by HQ.
