Is it the case that all Barkingside solicitor firms on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?

My offer on a detached house in Barkingside has been accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on somewhere, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats booked. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Barkingside. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Principality?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Barkingside conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to check that your solicitor is on the Principality approved list. Regarding the next stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market some purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Principality and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their property lawyer to move forward with searches.
