Lloyds will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Lloyds will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Wollaston postcode.

As is the case with lots of professional services, often recommendations from relatives can be most helpful. Yet there are many players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and banks may recommend solicitors to select. On occasion the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to choose your own conveyancer. Don't forget that many banks have an approved list of lawyers you have to use for the lender aspect of your transaction.

I’m about to sell my 2 bed apartment in Wollaston. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have recently received a quarterly service charge demand – Do I pay up?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the maintenance contribution as usual as all ground rent and service invoices will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
