First, you should ensure that your lawyer is on the Lloyds approved list. Regarding the next stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many home buyers would apply for the mortgage with Lloyds and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their lawyer to proceed with searches.
