We were going to get a OIP from Aldermore this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

I recently had an offer accepted on an apartment in Willerby. My mortgage broker suggested a solicitor. I paid an upfront payment of £200. Soon after, the conveyancer contacted me to say that they were not on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Bank of Ireland panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

How does conveyancing in Willerby differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Willerby approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because builders in Willerby tend to buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Willerby or who has acted in the same development.
