The sellers have submitted an offer on a flat, although it’s not been accepted yet, and has viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Bedford. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with UBS started with UBS?

It is usual to have anxieties where there is an associated chain given your reluctance to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Bedford conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should ensure that your lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market the majority of buyers would apply for the mortgage with UBS and arrange for the survey and only if it comes back ok would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with searches.
