We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the agent advised that the seller will only proceed if we instruct the agent's chosen conveyancers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Morecambe
It is unlikely the sellers are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is going to damage their objectives. Try to communicate with the vendors directly and make sure they understand (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to use your own,trusted Morecambe conveyancing firm - not the ones that will give the negotiator at the agency a referral fee or hit his conveyancing thresholds set by HQ.
