Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Principality. Market Deeping conveyancing practitioners have been appointed. How long does it take for Principality to send the offer to the lawyer?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Principality conducted the valuation? Have you advised Principality as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Principality conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Market Deeping. I have a mortgage agreed with Virgin Money. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Virgin Money, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.

I am buying a new build house in Market Deeping benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative told me not disclose to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it will jeopardize my loan with Clydesdale. Should I keep quiet?.

I have been pointed in your direction by two or three local property agents in Market Deeping to get a quote from a conveyancer using your seach tool. What’s the financial incentive for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers over and above another?
