At last I have had an offer on a flat in Surbiton agreed to, the vendors do nevertheless have a connected purchase. The vendors have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats booked. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Surbiton. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Skipton going?

It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Surbiton conveyancing search costs, etc).

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Surbiton is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Surbiton are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Surbiton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Surbiton 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 residence.

I was advised by numerous property agents in Surbiton to choose a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to market your lawyers over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t give any commission for sending work in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the estate agent told us that the seller will only proceed if we instruct the agent's chosen lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a family conveyancer who is accustomed to conveyancing in Surbiton

It is improbable the vendors are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine buyer is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to appoint your own,trusted Surbiton conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a referral fee or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by corporate headquarters.
