My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, but the selling agent has warned us that the seller will only issue a contract if we appoint the agent's preferred solicitors as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Stevenage

It is unlikely the sellers are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is going to damage their objectives. Try to communicate with the sellers directly and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to instruct your preferred Stevenage conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will earn their negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing figures pre-set by head office.

I am an executor of my recently deceased parent's Will, with a house in Stevenage which is to be sold. The property is unregistered at HMLR and I'm told that many buyers solicitors will insist that it is done before they'll proceed. What's the mechanism for this?

In the situation that you have set out it seems advisable to seek to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. The Land Registry’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and official copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
