I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and have to vacate my let out apartment in Basildon by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase is progressing. How realistic is it to complete in 4 weeks as I wish to avoid having to find temporary accommodation?
It is unwise to provide notice for your lease unless exchange of contracts has taken place. If you have not already done so, contact to your lawyer and request that they chase the owners lawyers, try to get a realistic time scale from them that everyone will work to achieve
We are planning to move house in December. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Basildon. Conveyancing lawyer was found prior to coming across your page.
On the day of completion you can collect the house keys from your property agent however this can only take place after the vendors lawyers inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be released. After that you should tell the removal company that they can start moving you in. We do not suggest a specific removal company but can assist you in choosing a conveyancing in Basildon or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Basildon.
Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Basildon. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Basildon conveyancing practitioner is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Basildon lawyer having checked that they are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Leeds Building Society will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Leeds Building Society 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 property 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 Basildon postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Leeds Building Society, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Basildon.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Basildon?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Basildon. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
How does conveyancing in Basildon differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Basildon come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because new home sellers in Basildon tend to purchase the real estate, 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 property lawyers 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 Basildon or who has acted in the same development.

My husband and I are FTB’s - had an offer accepted, yet the agent told us that the owners will only go ahead if we use their recommended solicitors as they want an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Basildon
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Try to communicate with the owners directly and make the point that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to instruct your preferred Basildon conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will give the estate agent a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by head office.
