Our offer on property in Caversham was accepted, but there is a chain. The current proprietors have offered on a flat, however it’s not yet tied up, and has viewings of other properties booked. I have chosen a local conveyancing lawyer in Caversham. What should be my next step? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with UBS?
It is usual to have concerns 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, Caversham conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should ensure that your property lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Regarding the next stages this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market some purchasers will apply for the mortgage with UBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.
