Finally the sale completed on my house in Ealing last October but our buyer keeps e-mailing daily to moan that their lawyer is waiting to hear from mylawyer. What are the post completion sale legalities now that I have sold?

We previously chose solicitors with offices in Ealing on the Leeds Building Society solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a supplemental fee for handling the Leeds Building Society mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Leeds Building Society?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your property lawyer can levy a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by Leeds Building Society but by your Ealing conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of firms on the Leeds Building Society panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
I'm in the throws of viewing flats in Ealing and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I am planning to take a home loan with RBS.
You should start requesting conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the selling agent. Given that you are getting a mortgage with RBS, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the RBS conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
Just acquired a semi-detached house in Ealing , how long will it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My Ealing conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to check the post completion formalities are concluded.
As far as conveyancing in Ealing is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any other parties. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration occurs once the purchaser has moved in to the premises so an expedited registration is not always top priority yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
