Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nottingham. Flackwell Heath conveyancing solicitors have been appointed. How long does it take for Nottingham to issue the offer to the conveyancer?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Nottingham completed the valuation? Have you advised Nottingham as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
We were going to get a AIP from Kent Reliance this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

At last I have had an offer on a flat in Flackwell Heath agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have put an offer on on an apartment, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other properties booked. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Flackwell Heath. What should be my next step? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with Nationwide?
It is usual 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 approx £1k, then survey, Flackwell Heath conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Nationwide approved list. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of purchasers will apply for a home loan with Nationwide and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their solicitor to move forward with the conveyancing in Flackwell Heath.

There are a lot of properties in Flackwell Heath on private lanes. We are buying one such house. Are there any benefits to buying a house on a private road?
Flackwell Heath conveyancing solicitors are well versed in transacting propertieson private. The lawyer will investigate Land Registry data to find any rights or liabilities. In many cases there is a management company (wholly owned by residents) that residents pay into to maintain the road.
