I am only a couple days away from an exchange on a property in Gosport and my mum and dad have transferred the ten percent deposit to my lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my solicitor needs to make a notification to my bank. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I informed the bank about my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?
Your conveyancing practitioner is duty bound to check with the bank to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only report this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Where you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in Gosport you are invited in to sign the paperwork. However, the law practices we work with offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally.

The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Gosport)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Gosport but how do I know who's good?
It would be unwise to be tempted by the cheapest Gosport conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in advance.
I am due to move house in April. Does my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Gosport. Conveyancing lawyer was organised prior to coming across your site.

I currently have a mortgage with Aldermore for my property in Gosport. Conveyancing has been completed 12 months ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Aldermore?
Your original mortgage agreement with Aldermore will provide that you need their approval before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Aldermore’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 Aldermore directly. You need not do this via a Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor.
