My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent informed us that the owners will only issue a contract if we use their chosen lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Hamworthy
It is unlikely the sellers are driving this. Should the vendor require ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to instruct your preferred Hamworthy conveyancing firm - rather thanthe ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing figures demanded by senior management.
