My sealed bid on a house in Hereford has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on somewhere, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Hereford. What should be my next step? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with UBS?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Hereford conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is check that your lawyer is on the UBS approved list. As to the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many buyers will apply for the mortgage with UBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.

How does conveyancing in Hereford differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Hereford contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in Hereford 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Hereford or who has acted in the same development.
