Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nottingham. Bourton on the Water conveyancing lawyers are instructed. How long does it take for Nottingham to send the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?

The vendors have offered on a flat, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other properties booked. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Bourton on the Water. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Coventry BS going?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Bourton on the Water conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your solicitor is on the Coventry BS approved list. Concerning the subsequent stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market many purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Coventry BS and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancer to proceed with searches.
