    Buying a Flat 11th Jul 17 at 11:46 AM
    Couple of questions.

    For a cash buyer, what is the amount below the asking, in percentage terms, that I could offer for a property and still be realistic?

    When is the best time to appoint a solicitor in relation to buying a flat. I assume when I have located the flat that I want to purchase. Am I correct?

    The same as a non cash buyer, in all likelihood.
