I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Clydesdale. Is it usual for Clydesdale to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Whimple is approved on their conveyancing panel? Clydesdale have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

After what seems like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Whimple agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on somewhere, but it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Whimple. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Whimple conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to check that your property lawyer is on the Kent Reliance approved list. Regarding the next phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market the majority of buyers will apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their solicitor to proceed with searches.

How does conveyancing in Whimple differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Whimple contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because house builders in Whimple tend to acquire 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 Whimple or who has acted in the same development.
