    Nested - and appointing solicitors 10th Nov 18 at 9:44 AM
    Hello all,

    We posted (what seems like) ages ago about problems with our buyer, who was not proceeding with their mortgage application. We have offered on a flat, out of London, based on the offer we received back in July. Our buyers, renting locally, seemed great to start with but the catalogue of delays about why their mortgage application has not been submitted is frankly unbelievable. Everything else ready to go, surveys, legal etc all ready. Anyway, we put the house back on the market at beginning of October and not surprisingly the EA has been somewhat slow in marketing our property again. We havenít yet pulled out of the current buyers, there is always the outside chance they come through.

    So, under pressure not to lose our dream flat, we have looked at Nested as an option to fill the gap. Weíve spoken to them, and they are interested in our house. We are waiting for our notice period with current EA to conclude and then we need to decide if we do it. It will cost us, but as we are downsizing we are prepared to take the hit.

    What experience have the MSE forum had of them?

    Iím particularly interested in the suggestion we use their nominated solicitor - anyone else had to do this too? It means leaving our present solicitors, More costs etc.

    Thanks for any first hand experiences.

    Be interested to see how much below market value their 'data driven valuation' comes in at.......

    Probably as acurate as Zoopla's valuations....
