Can tell you who to avoid! 

Loads doing half arsed job atm so I'd go local and find one with a good reputation and office that you can go to. 

I wouldn't wish what we had to go through on anyone!

OK fair comment, can you remember who you dealt with? Was it Zulf or Karin by any chance? 

neither but the staff changed totally from using them last time (2018) when the service was OK.

Ownership may have changed since then, it may have been Adamson's in 2018 I can't remember now.

Don't use Russell and Russell. Was paying cash for an empty property should have been 6 - 8 weeks max to get it completed. After 3 months of Russell and Russell pissing about, staff holidays etc and not getting it completed the seller decided to rent it out instead, was about £700 down in searches and a  survey.Annoying thing was i had a perfectly good and quick solicitor down south, but the Bolton estate agent insisted I use a local solicitor

I used Russell & Russell. Can't remember having any issues with them. But it was a long time ago.

 

But I'm being told, by someone ITK, that Amity are the ones you should be thinking of using.

You should have told the estate agent to get to fuck, it is non of their business who you use.

Similar story for when we bought this house, Completed on the 19th of January, we made the offer mid August. 

List as long as your arm of things that if I worked like that in my job role, I wouldn't have a job for long.
