We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Yorkshire BS. Longthorpe conveyancing solicitors have been appointed. How long does it take for Yorkshire BS to send the offer to the lawyer?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Yorkshire BS completed the valuation? Have you advised Yorkshire BS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
Having read lots of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Longthorpe solicitor - who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
Nottingham will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Nottingham 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. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Longthorpe postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Nottingham, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Longthorpe.
