We are planning to move home in July. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you recommend a removal company in Broadstairs. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen before I stumbled across this page.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the keys from the estate agent but this can only occur once the previous owners solicitors inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be released. After that you will need to advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to recommend a specific removal company but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Broadstairs or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Broadstairs.

We had instructed conveyancing lawyers located in Broadstairs on the Skipton solicitor approved list. They have just billed me a further fee for handling the Skipton mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Skipton?

Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your property lawyer can charge a fee for this. This charge is not set by Skipton but by your Broadstairs property lawyer. Some firms on the Skipton panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.

I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Broadstairs. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an advanced payment of £225. Shortly after, the property lawyer called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Nottingham panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I purchased a 4 bedroom Victorian property in Broadstairs. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Yorkshire Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Broadstairs and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Broadstairs is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Broadstairs are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Broadstairs you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Broadstairs may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
