Our sealed bid on a detached house in Highgate has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on on an apartment, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other properties booked. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Highgate. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Bank of Ireland going?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Highgate conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is check that your solicitor is on the Bank of Ireland approved list. As to the next stages this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some home buyers will apply for a home loan with Bank of Ireland and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancer to press on with searches.

    Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.

My husband and I have just had an offer accepted on our 1st home in Highgate, and are about to get solicitors appointed. I have used the different rating based websites and the quotes are from all over the the UK. Is it critical to have a Highgate property lawyer local to our prospective property? I am content to do everything electronically, but I assume at some point we may need to visit the conveyancing practitioner's office to sign documents?

The lawyer does not need to be in Highgate, but opting for local means that you can go in if required, for instance, if a signature is immediately necessary. Also, a Highgate solicitor is likely to be familiar with local agents and (if the vendor has chosen a local property lawyer) with them, which will help keep things moving faster.
