I am planning to move house in August. Will my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Copse Hill. Conveyancing solicitor was found before I stumbled across this page.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the selling agent but this can only occur once the vendors conveyancers 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. We do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Copse Hill or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Copse Hill.

Your estate agent will want to be advised as to your lawyer's details (be sure the conveyancers are on the lender’s panel).

The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Copse Hill.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one round the corner in Copse Hill I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Copse Hill suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Copse Hill - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
