It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then survey, Mersea Island conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to check that your lawyer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of buyers would apply for a home loan with Bank of Ireland and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancer to press on with searches.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Mersea Island is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Almost all residences in Mersea Island should appear. Have you tried a search with just the postcode. Normally it should reveal all the houses and flats inside that postcode. Where recorded it will show up with a title number. Where they bought 48 years ago it's conceivable it may be unregistered. The address might still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to track down the original title papers which could be with your parent’s mortgage company.
