I am aiming to move property in October. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Earl Shilton. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen prior to coming across this website.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the house keys from your selling agent however this can only occur once the vendors solicitors advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be released. After that you should advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal organisation but can help you find a conveyancing in Earl Shilton or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Earl Shilton.
We had instructed conveyancing lawyers located in Earl Shilton on the Coventry BS solicitor approved list. They have just billed me an additional charge for dealing with the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Coventry BS?
Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your solicitor can charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Coventry BS but by your Earl Shilton property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Coventry BS panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
I have instructed a Earl Shilton property lawyer having made sure that they are on the Principality conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Principality will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Principality will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancing practitioner will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Earl Shilton postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Principality, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Earl Shilton.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Earl Shilton with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my lawyer about the extras as it would affect my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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%.

My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the estate agent has warned us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we use the agent's preferred solicitors as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Earl Shilton
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this requirement. If they require ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine buyer is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to use your own,trusted Earl Shilton conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will provide their negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing targets set by senior management.
