Intending to buy a apartment in Ascot. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage".

I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Ascot solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.
After what seems like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Ascot accepted, the vendors do however have a tied purchase.

The first course of action is to ensure that your solicitor is on the Santander conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market many purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Santander and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their property lawyer to move forward with searches.
