Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the Barclays Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Bideford?
The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
I am due to move home in April. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Bideford. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across this page.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the keys from the property agent but this can only take place when the previous owners conveyancers confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be given over. After that you should inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. We do not recommend a specific removal company but can help you find a conveyancing in Bideford or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in Bideford.

Nationwide don't usually appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Nationwide list.
How does conveyancing in Bideford differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Bideford approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Bideford usually buy the site, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in Bideford or who has acted in the same development.
