can you clarify if you have applied to a lender or are you waiting to find the right house with the buyer of your house pressuring you?
Don't feel pressurised. Just tell the EA you haven't decided yet. There's nothing to progress at the moment.
First off, thank you for all the replies, they've been extremely helpful.
Now that's out the way, why is it so hard to find a solicitor that responds to enquiry's. I used the 'Compare and Convey'
site to locate several firms, which all quote around the £1300 mark.
However, if you obtain a quote direct from their websites it goes up to
around £2100- over £800 more??
To date, only one company has responded to my initial email, and for
every place I find that looks promising, the online reviews are
scathing. It looks like I'm going to have to take a chance, so it may as
well be local....unless, someone can come up with a suggestion?
Maybe ask your mortgage broker if they can recommend someone and put you in touch? Mine asked someone she knew to send me a quote - it was competitive so went with them. All local firms were rubbish at responding or not taking on new cases; they were about 45 mins drive away but didn’t need to see them in person.
