We're in Dagenham, First time buyers buying with a mortgage (lender is HSBC , and our lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no property 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.
We are due to move home in April. Will my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Dagenham. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across your page.

After that you can tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to recommend a particular removal company but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Dagenham or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Dagenham.
I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Dagenham. The Dagenham property was put into my name in January. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in January. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs 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 mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation is primarily there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
The mortgage over my property is with Kent Reliance for my property in Dagenham. Conveyancing was finalised a year ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Kent Reliance?
Kent Reliance must be informed of your intention prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Kent Reliance’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Kent Reliance directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Kent Reliance conveyancing panel lawyer.

I’m about to sell my ground floor apartment in Dagenham. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have recently received a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is pay the service charge as normal as all rents and service payments will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless 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.
I inherited a second floor flat in Dagenham. In the absence of agreement between myself and the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the amount due for the purchase of the freehold?
if there is a absentee landlord or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to judgment on the amount due.
An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Dagenham flat is 49 Aldborough Road South in July 2012. The Tribunal decided that the premium payable for the grant of the new lease was £13,925 This case affected 1 flat. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 61.36 years.
