We are aiming to move house in August. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Broxbourne. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen prior to coming across this site.
On the day of completion you can pick up the keys from your estate agent but this can only occur after the previous owners lawyers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. After that you can advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal company but can help you choose a conveyancing in Broxbourne or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Broxbourne.
Can you help - my lawyer advises that breach of easement insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Broxbourne?

My fiancee and I are at the point of viewing houses in Broxbourne and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I am planning to take a home loan with Principality.
It would be advisable to commence your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their contact information on to the estate agent. Given that you are getting a mortgage with Principality, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Principality conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

How does conveyancing in Broxbourne differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Broxbourne come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because house builders in Broxbourne typically acquire the land, 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 conveyancers 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 Broxbourne or who has acted in the same development.
I have been advised by numerous property agents in Broxbourne to select a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to market your services over and above a competitor’s?
We refuse to offer any referral fee for sending work to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
