My fiancee and I are at the point of looking at apartments in Belgravia and I am about to put in an offer. Is it sensible to have my conveyancer on ‘stand by’? I will be getting a home loan with Yorkshire BS.
You should start obtaining conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the EA.

At last I have had an offer on an apartment in Belgravia agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on somewhere, but it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Belgravia. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Kent Reliance started?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then survey, Belgravia conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should ensure that your conveyancer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many purchasers would apply for a home loan with Kent Reliance and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancer to proceed with the conveyancing in Belgravia.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Belgravia I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Belgravia in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
