I am planning to move house in March. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Battlesbridge. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen prior to coming across your page.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from the property agent however this should only take place when the vendors solicitors advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be passed over. After that you can inform the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal company but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Battlesbridge or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Battlesbridge.
We expect to receive a OIP from Leeds Building Society this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Leeds Building Society recommend any Battlesbridge solicitors on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Battlesbridge solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Leeds Building Society through the process.

Historically registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the property so post completion formalities is not always top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
