My offer on a detached house in Stockton Heath has been accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have put an offer 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 Stockton Heath. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Virgin Money started?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Stockton Heath conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is check that your solicitor is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some home buyers will apply for the mortgage with Virgin Money and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancer to move forward with searches.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Stockton Heath is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Stockton Heath are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Stockton Heath you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Stockton Heath may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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 residence.
