After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Yarm accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on somewhere, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Yarm. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Lloyds?

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Yarm conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is check that your conveyancer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Concerning the next stages this very much depends on the specifics of your case, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some home buyers will apply for the mortgage with Lloyds and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their lawyer to move forward with searches.

My partner and I are selling our home in Yarm and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Yarm. We have lived in Yarm for many years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
