We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Forestdale?

Do check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel solicitors should you accept the "fee-free" deal. Call the mortgage company and explore if they make available a monetary alternative. Some mortgage companies have previously offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Forestdale.

We expect to receive a DIP from Coventry BS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Coventry BS recommend any Forestdale solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Forestdale solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Coventry BS through the process.

I can not work out if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Forestdale building society branch on a couple of occasions and was advised it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Forestdale conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

As long as the conveyancer is on the bank panel, they must adhere to the CML Handbook conditions for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

RBS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a flat in Forestdale has been agreed to, what happens next?

The property agent will want to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the conveyancers are on the bank’s panel). Telephone RBS or the financial adviser and complete any appropriate forms. RBS will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or owners to schedule an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average ten days to get a mortgage offer. RBS will send the offer to you and your property lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Forestdale.

I have been told that property searches are the primary cause of delay in Forestdale conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the top 10 causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Forestdale.

Hoping to buy a property located in Forestdale and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Forestdale. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Forestdale area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?
