Have just purchased a probate house at auction in Uxbridge. Conveyancing is needed. What are my next steps?
Given that you have now legally committed yourself to purchase you should find a conveyancing lawyer quickly as you are faced with a fast approaching a drop dead date to complete the transaction. Every auction property will ordinarily have an associated legal set of papers. This will likely include evidence of title and search results. If you have purchased leasehold property the legal papers should include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing paperwork specific to leasehold premises. You must give this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor ASAP. Do make sure that you have funds in place to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
We were going to get a DIP from HSBC this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do HSBC recommend any Uxbridge solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Uxbridge solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the HSBC conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and HSBC through the process.
Our sealed bid on a property in Uxbridge has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have placed an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other properties booked. I have selected a local conveyancing solicitor in Uxbridge. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Leeds Building Society going?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Uxbridge conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your property lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society approved list. As to the next steps this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some home buyers would apply for a home loan with Leeds Building Society and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancer to move forward with the conveyancing in Uxbridge.
A relative advised me that where I am buying in Uxbridge I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

How does conveyancing in Uxbridge differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Uxbridge come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Uxbridge tend to purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Uxbridge or who has acted in the same development.

The benefit of a high street Uxbridge conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to sign documents, present your identification documents and pester them if necessary.
