I have selected a high street conveyancing solicitor in Dickens Heath. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Bank of Ireland going?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Dickens Heath conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Concerning the next stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Bank of Ireland and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with the conveyancing in Dickens Heath.
