We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to appoint their panel lawyer as I would much rather instruct a Leaves Green based conveyancing firm?

Do check but the the probability is that give you one of their panel solicitors if you accept the "fee-free" offer. Call the bank and determine if they allow a cash alternative.

I have a mortgage with Co-operative for my property in Leaves Green. Conveyancing was finalised months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Co-operative?

Your original mortgage agreement with Co-operative will provide that you need their approval before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Co-operative’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Co-operative will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Co-operative directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Co-operative conveyancing panel solicitor.

Having digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Leaves Green solicitor - who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Coventry BS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Coventry BS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Leaves Green surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Leaves Green agreed to, the owners do however have a dependent purchase. The sellers have offered on somewhere, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Leaves Green. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with RBS going?

It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Leaves Green conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must ensure that your solicitor is on the RBS conveyancing panel. Concerning the next steps this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some home buyers will apply for a home loan with RBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with the conveyancing in Leaves Green.
