You will need to appoint Walthamstow Village solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Santander conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Santander through the process.

After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Walthamstow Village. My mortgage broker suggested a conveyancer. I paid an upfront payment of £150. Shortly after, the property lawyer contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

The vendors have put an offer on somewhere, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have selected a high street conveyancing solicitor in Walthamstow Village. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with RBS?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Walthamstow Village conveyancing search fees, etc).

As to the next stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some buyers would apply for the mortgage with RBS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with the conveyancing in Walthamstow Village.
