What happens if my solicitor is removed from the Coventry BS Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Edenbridge?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from the selling agent but this should only take place once the sellers solicitors advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. After that you should advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. We do not recommend a specific removal company but can assist you in choosing a conveyancing in Edenbridge or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Edenbridge.

It is not clear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date.

Your conveyancer has to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 conditions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase.
