I am due to move house in September. Should my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Bickley. Conveyancing lawyer was found prior to coming across this website.

We do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can help you locate a conveyancing in Bickley or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Bickley.

Your conveyancer should review the registered title as conveyancing in Bickley will on occasion identify restrictions in the title documents which prohibit categories of changes or need the consent of another owner. Some works need local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
It is unclear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Bickley building society branch on numerous occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Bickley conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.
Your lawyer has to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 requirements for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
I moved into my house on 2 May and my personal details are still not registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Bickley advises it would be concluded inside ten days. Are titles in Bickley particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Bickley registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd parties. Currently roughly three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration is effected once the buyer is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not always top priority but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
I am looking for a flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Bickley I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Bickley suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
