I'm in the process of viewing apartments in Abersoch and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I intend to finance via a home loan with Kent Reliance.
It would be prudent to commence your search sooner rather than later.

As you are getting a mortgage with Kent Reliance, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.
I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Clydesdale. Is it usual for Clydesdale to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Abersoch is approved on their conveyancing panel? Clydesdale have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Clydesdale to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
My offer on a detached house in Abersoch has been accepted, the owners do nevertheless have a tied purchase. The sellers have placed an offer on a flat, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline.

It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Abersoch conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your lawyer is on the Clydesdale approved list. Concerning the next phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many home buyers will apply for a home loan with Clydesdale and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.
