I had a mortgage agreed in principle with TSB. Stone conveyancing practitioners are chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from TSB?

I'm spending time viewing apartments in Stone and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it best to have my property lawyer on ‘stand by’? I will be getting a mortgage with Barclays.
It would be prudent to instigate your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the EA. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Barclays, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel.

The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.
