After what seems like an age I have had an offer on an flat in North Finchley agreed to, the owner does however have a tied purchase.

It is standard to have anxieties where there is a chain given your reluctance to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, North Finchley conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your solicitor is on the UBS approved list. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market many purchasers would apply for a home loan with UBS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their solicitor to press on with searches.
