The owners have put an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other flats booked. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in East Dulwich. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Yorkshire BS going with Yorkshire BS?

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is an associated chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, East Dulwich conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must ensure that your solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS approved list. Concerning the next stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market many buyers will apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS and arrange for the survey and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancer to press on with the conveyancing in East Dulwich.
