Conveyancer wants sellers to agree pre-viewing property...

I respect Mr Ambrose’s view but perhaps it is he that misses the mark. Yes this may appear as a simplistic view on the surface (not the entire MS article btw) but ask every estate agent in the land and they will tell you how long it takes to get a contract out. Rob, your comment about 'instructing a conveyancer before a buyer is found' is spot on, and a solution I not only welcome but actively promote. By doing so clients can, and are happy to complete property information via their conveyancer in the knowledge that a useful contract can be issued as soon as a buyer is found. I would guess that Karl is at the coalface too and his experiences are very real…….and dare I say usual. I understand the opinion that some ‘armchair panel managers’ are too far from the coal face, but this one has the privilege of working closely with a dozen or so of the largest volume conveyancers in the country, several hundred independent estate agents and a few thousand mortgage brokers. We constantly discuss the consumer journey as well as the challenges for conveyancers and other stakeholders. Go ahead and disagree with me but my armchair sits in front of a pin sharp HD widescreen with glorious technicolour and a great view from a very ‘credible’ perspective. Feel free to come and have a look. Our ongoing experience shows that by engaging the vendor in the conveyancing process and documentation early, it stops them from (unintentionally) holding things up by a couple of weeks.

Will make it more affordable, Pah! Fee's can be reduced but rents less likely. Landlords will increase their rent to cover the costs, so good luck passing the affordability requirement! Bravo, idiots!

Just what was the landlord supposed to do to stop this nuisance? At best it is a six month process to evict the tenant, a tenant who has the right to quiet enjoyment. All the tools which could be used by a landlord to rectify the situation have been taken away by successive governments. Can't enter the property, can't cut the power supply, even speaking to the tenant would result in an accusation of harassment and a subsequent arrest. And do not think it cannot happen, one of my employees was arrested because he had the temerity to ask for the rent. This is a case which must be fought and like Rebecca I would be willing to contribute to a fighting fund.
