We suspect that the owner is not behind this ultimatum. Should the owner want ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to instruct your preferred Southall conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothose that will earn the estate agent a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing figures set by corporate headquarters.
