I am due to move property in December. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Dulverton. Conveyancing solicitor was organised before I stumbled across this page.
On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the keys from your selling agent however this can only be done after the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be handed over. You should advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to recommend a particular removal organisation but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Dulverton or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Dulverton.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as Leeds Building Society, do Dulverton conveyancing practitioners have to pay a yearly amount to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are not aware of any lender fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
We expect to receive a AIP from RBS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do RBS recommend any Dulverton solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Dulverton solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the RBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and RBS through the process.
How does conveyancing in Dulverton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Dulverton come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because new home sellers in Dulverton usually purchase 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Dulverton or who has acted in the same development.

I am attracted to a two maisonettes in Dulverton both have about 50 years unexpired on the leases. Will this present a problem?
There are plenty of short leases in Dulverton. The lease is a right to use the property for a period of time. As a lease shortens the saleability of the lease decreases and results in it becoming more costly to extend the lease. This is why it is generally wise to increase the term of the lease. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage lenders less inclined to grant a loan on properties of this type. Lease enfranchisement can be a protracted process. We advise that you get professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this field.
