I am expecting a OIP from Principality this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Gospel Oak off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Clydesdale. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons.

I have finally had an offer on an apartment in Gospel Oak accepted, the owners do nevertheless have a dependent purchase. The owners have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Gospel Oak. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Clydesdale started?

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Gospel Oak conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should ensure that your property lawyer is on the Clydesdale approved list. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market some purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancer to proceed with the conveyancing in Gospel Oak.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Gospel Oak registration formalities.

Registration takes place after the purchaser is living at the property therefore an expedited registration is not usually top priority but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
