Planning on purchasing a house in Alfreton. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Alfreton conveyancer is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.
I have instructed a Alfreton conveyancing practitioner having made sure that they are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Virgin Money will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Virgin Money will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Alfreton surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a flat in Alfreton accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on a property, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Alfreton. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with HSBC?
It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Alfreton conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to check that your conveyancer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market many home buyers would apply for the mortgage with HSBC and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their lawyer to move forward with searches.
