My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, but the property agent informed us that the seller will only proceed if we appoint their chosen lawyers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Hayling Island

We suspect that the owner is not behind this requirement. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Try to communicate with the vendors directly and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to instruct your preferred Hayling Island conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing targets pre-set by HQ.
