I am aiming to move house in December. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you recommend a removal company in Bootle. Conveyancing lawyer was organised prior to coming across your page.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from your selling agent but this can only occur when the sellers lawyers advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be passed over. You will need to advise the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal company but can help you locate a conveyancing in Bootle or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Bootle.
I happen to be the sole recipient of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Bootle. The Bootle property was put into my name in August. I want to move. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in August. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be impacted by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this provision primarily exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
I have instructed a Bootle lawyer having checked that they are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Bank of Ireland will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Bank of Ireland 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. You may wish to consider appointing your own Bootle surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
