    But to echo your sentiments, i was astonished that there was zero back and forth on price

    Or maybe they had seen enough places and knew they wanted this one badly enough?

    Im also conscious that its early days and could fall through at any point up to completion

    Possibly, i never asked. Is it not their job to manage that though?

    We had on average 2 viewings per day in the week it was live, so there was a lot of interest in it. Maybe they got offers under asking and played them off each other?

    More would have been nice, but we advertised it for our "break even" price as we've moved home to Ireland, and if it wasn't sold by September it would have become a rental property.

    Zero negotiation. Well, they asked if we'd be open to leaving white goods behind.

    I don't want to jinx myself but we got a cash offer of asking (which is what EA valued it at) on our place within a week of going live.

    Great because its ultimately what we wanted, but it makes me wonder if it was undervalued.

    Here's hoping nothing goes belly up between now and completion!

    Yeah almost all of it (1,120) is conveyancing, with the rest being various admin and processing fees.

    Does anyone have any recent experience with solicitor fees? Sale only conveyancing on a freehold within a managed cul de sac? Just been quoted 1400 by a recommended solicitor, but they don't offer a no sale no fee agreement. Does that seem about right?

    I don't really want to spend my day looking for solicitors for the sake of 50 to 100 quid savings...

    See if wooster and stock will do that area? They have been super professional with ours so far.

    I've just moved to rural Ireland and this was a major worry for me, but i bought a tp link mr600 and tried a few 4g broadband sim providers before settling on one that appears to have as fast a connection as my virgin media fibre power broadband in camberwell
