I have finally had an offer on an maisonette in Flitwick agreed to, the owner does however have a tied purchase. The sellers have offered on somewhere, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Flitwick. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Lloyds?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is an associated chain given your reluctance to incur expenses prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then survey, Flitwick conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should check that your solicitor is on the Lloyds approved list. As to the next phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many buyers would apply for a home loan with Lloyds and pay for the survey and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with the conveyancing in Flitwick.
