I am aiming to move home in December. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Charlton. Conveyancing solicitor was found before I stumbled across your site.

On the day of completion you will need to collect the keys from the estate agent however this can only take place when the vendors conveyancers advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you should inform the removal men that they can start moving you in. We do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Charlton or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Charlton.

I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Charlton. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in October. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in October. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML 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 caught by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this obligation principally exists to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Charlton off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Skipton. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Skipton, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Skipton conveyancing panel.

What can a local search inform me concerning the house we're purchasing in Charlton?

Charlton conveyancing often starts with the submitting local authority searches directly from your local Authority or via a personal search organisations for example Onsearch The local search plays an important role in many a Charlton conveyancing purchase; that is if you wish to avoid any nasty surprises after you move into your property. The search should provide data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications applicable to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of thirteen subject areas.

I am purchasing my first flat in Charlton benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The estate agent advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about this side-deal as it will jeopardize my loan with Barnsley Building Society. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I decided to have a survey done on a property in Charlton before retaining conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. Our surveyor has said that some banks tend not grant a mortgage on a flying freehold property.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different instructions from Nationwide. If you contact us we can check via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Charlton. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Charlton to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

My husband and I are 3 weeks into a residential purchase having been referred to solicitors by the estate agent to perform conveyancing in Charlton. I am not happy. Could you help me find new solicitors?

A conveyancer would have to be very bad to suggest diss instructing them. Has the mortgage been issued? In the event that it has you need to advise them of the replacement lawyer and ensure the offer are re-issued. The conveyancer should be on the mortgage company panel to avoid added costs and frustration. That should be your first question of the new solicitors.
