My partner and I have organised a further advance on our home loan from Bank of Ireland as we wish to conduct alterations to our house in Grimsby. Are we obliged to choose a bricks and mortar Grimsby solicitor on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel to handle the legals?

I recently had an offer accepted on a house in Grimsby. My financial adviser suggested a conveyancer. I paid an upfront payment of £225. Soon after, the lawyer called me to say that they were not on the Principality conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Principality panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I have finally had an offer on an apartment in Grimsby agreed to, the vendors do however have a connected purchase. The sellers have offered on a property, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other properties booked. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Grimsby. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with RBS?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then survey, Grimsby conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must check that your lawyer is on the RBS conveyancing panel. Concerning the next steps this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some purchasers would apply for the mortgage with RBS and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their lawyer to proceed with searches.
