Your solicitor will check the deeds as conveyancing in Rufford will sometimes reveal restrictions in the title documents which prevent certain alterations or need the permission of another owner. Certain extensions call for local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
HSBC have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a flat in Rufford has been accepted, now what?
Your property agent will need to know who your solicitors are (make sure the lawyers are on the bank’s panel). Call up HSBC or the financial adviser and complete any relevant forms. HSBC will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or vendor to book a slot for the valuation to happen. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. HSBC will issue the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Rufford.

I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Rufford. What should be my next step? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Bank of Ireland?
It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Rufford conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your conveyancer is on the Bank of Ireland approved list. As to the next stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many buyers would apply for the mortgage with Bank of Ireland and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their property lawyer to proceed with searches.
