I am planning to move home in March. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Harlech. Conveyancing lawyer was found prior to coming across your page.

On the day of completion you can collect the house keys from your property agent however this should only happen when the vendors solicitors advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. Subsequently you should tell the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a specific removal organisation but can help you choose a conveyancing in Harlech or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in Harlech.

When it comes to conveyancing in Harlech obtaining recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always recommend that you speak with the lawyer conducting your transaction.

My partner and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Harlech and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street Harlech conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed an online conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Harlech. We have lived in Harlech for many years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get clarification that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

It has been three months since my purchase conveyancing in Harlech concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Harlech. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Harlech

    Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.

We have been informed by various estate agents to expect 6-8 weeks for Harlech conveyancing to complete.This was four weeks ago. The draft contract was only received to my conveyancing practitioner yesterday so does the time start running now?

Do not rely on moving on a specific date until exchange of contracts occurs. Whatever assurances the people you are purchasing from or selling to make, or your lender gives don't bank on them. More stress is caused to clients trying to move home by false promises than anything else.
