The estate agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (be sure the conveyancing practitioners are on the lender’s panel). Telephone HSBC or your financial adviser and finish off any outstanding documentation.

Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. HSBC will issue the offer to you and your solicitors.
