I have never been in this situation before. It's quite a dilapidated house but is on at a good price so I should think a few people will want to see it apart from us. There is one block viewing over an hour with the estate agent on Saturday morning - there have been issues with access and I think this is part of the reason why. I am a cash buyer with no chain. Is there any way I can give myself an advantage (other than be there early, I suppose), or general dos and don'ts?
Cash doesn't always win the day - from bitter experience. So I'd go in early with my offer and keep reminding them that you are a cash buyer and can complete quickly. Try not to offer full asking price, unless you think it's a reasonable one for area and state of house.
