I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Yorkshire BS. Bedford Park conveyancing lawyers have been chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Yorkshire BS?

I am buying a property in Bedford Park. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Skipton have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
Given that your lender is Skipton your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements set out in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Skipton. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Skipton where a lease does not meet these provisions. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to Bedford Park.
At last I have had an offer on a maisonette in Bedford Park agreed to, the sellers do nevertheless have a connected purchase. The vendors have offered on a property, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Bedford Park. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with UBS?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Bedford Park conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must ensure that your property lawyer is on the UBS approved list. As to the next stages this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some home buyers would apply for a home loan with UBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their solicitor to press on with the conveyancing in Bedford Park.

How does conveyancing in Bedford Park differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Bedford Park approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because builders in Bedford Park tend to acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Bedford Park or who has acted in the same development.
Do I need to be wary that estate agents that I am dealing with are suggesting an internet conveyancing firm rather than a local Bedford Park conveyancing firm?
As with lots of service providers, often referrals from relatives can be worth their weight in gold. But there are lots of players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and banks may suggest conveyancers to appoint. On occasion these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there exists a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You have the right to appoint your preferred conveyancer. However, bear in mind that the majority of mortgage providers specify a panel list of law firms you must use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.
