We expect to receive a AIP from Kent Reliance 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).

You will need to appoint Avonmouth solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Kent Reliance through the process.
I'm in the throws of looking at flats in Avonmouth and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it wise to have a solicitor on ‘stand by’? I am planning to take a mortgage with Virgin Money.
You should start obtaining conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the EA. As you are getting a mortgage with Virgin Money, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
I currently have a mortgage with Leeds Building Society for my property in Avonmouth. Conveyancing was finalised months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Leeds Building Society?
Your original mortgage agreement with Leeds Building Society will provide that you need their approval in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Leeds Building Society’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Leeds Building Society directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel firm.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Avonmouth I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Avonmouth in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
Do I need to be wary by brokers that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a web based conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Avonmouth conveyancing company?
As with lots of professional services, often suggestions from family and friends can be very helpful. Nevertheless there are lots of parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and banks might all put forward lawyers to select. On occasion the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there might be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to appoint your preferred conveyancer. Don't forget that some banks operate an approved list of law firms you must use for the lender related work in your conveyancing.
