After what seems like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Leyland accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on on an apartment, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Leyland. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Barclays?

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Leyland conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Barclays approved list. Concerning the subsequent stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market some home buyers will apply for a home loan with Barclays and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Leyland may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
