My partner and I have an offer in principle from Bank of Ireland who indicated that they will loan up to £350k. When do I need to instruct a lawyer for conveyancing? Sandbach is where we plan to move to.

You can instruct a property lawyer now requesting that they open a file on your behalf. This will kickstart: 1) the selling agent to send out the Sales Memorandum to the relevant parties 2) the seller’s conveyancing practitioner to submit the draft contract. That being said, do not ask your conveyancer to order searches until you have your valuation report from Bank of Ireland and you are content to move forward.
