Do not opt for the cheapest Adlington conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need.

After what seems like an age I have had an offer on a flat in Adlington accepted, the vendors do nevertheless have a dependent purchase. The sellers have offered on a property, but it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Adlington. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Adlington conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must ensure that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market some home buyers would apply for a home loan with Yorkshire BS and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Adlington with a mortgage from Santander. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
