I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and must leave my let out flat in Canning Town by 20/12/2019. Conveyancing on my purchase is progressing. Is it possible to complete in a couple of weeks as I wish to avoid having to find temporary accommodation?

Generally one should not serve notice on a rental unless you have exchanged. Assuming that you have not previously done so, update to your conveyancer and request that they cajole the other lawyers, try to get a realistic time scale from them that everyone will look towards

We're in Canning Town, First time buyers purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Nationwide , and our solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

The deeds to my property are lost. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Canning Town 10 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?

Nowadays there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your lawyer should know precisely where to find all the appropriate paperwork so you may buy or sell your property without a hitch. Where duplicates can’t be found, your conveyancer may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against future claims on your property.

I have just started marketing my 2 bed flat in Canning Town. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have just received a yearly service charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the service charge as normal given that all ground rent and maintenance invoices will be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
