After what seems like an age I have had an offer on a flat in Beaworthy accepted, the vendors do however have a dependent purchase. The sellers have offered on a flat, but it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Beaworthy. What should be my next step? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with RBS?
It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Beaworthy conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the RBS approved list. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some purchasers will apply for the mortgage with RBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their solicitor to proceed with searches.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
Am I right to be suspicious by brokers that I am dealing with are recommending a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Beaworthy conveyancing practice?
As is the case with many service providers, often input from family and friends can be worth their weight in gold.

On occasion these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there behind the scenes commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You have the discretion to choose your own conveyancer. However, bear in mind that some mortgage providers have an approved list of law firms you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your house move.
