This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as FTB of a garden flat in Almondsbury. Do I collect the keys to the premises on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Almondsbury?
On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Almondsbury. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the completion advance to the seller's lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to receive the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens early afternoon.
We previously selected solicitors with offices in Almondsbury on the Nottingham solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a further charge for handling the Nottingham mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Nottingham?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your solicitor is entitled to levy a fee for this. The charge is not set by Nottingham but by your Almondsbury conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of firms on the Nottingham panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
We expect to receive a OIP from Nationwide this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Nationwide recommend any Almondsbury solicitors on the Nationwide conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Almondsbury solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nationwide through the process.
