Finally the sale completed on my house in Harlow last June but my buyer keeps telephoning every few hours to moan that their conveyancer is waiting to hear from mine. What should have happened following completion?
Post completion of your sale your lawyer should send the transfer deeds and all supplemental paperwork to the purchaser's solicitors. Where appropriate, your lawyer must also send confirmation that the home loan has been paid off to the buyers conveyancers. There is unlikely to be post completion formalities unique to conveyancing in Harlow.

We are aiming to move home in December. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Harlow. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across this site.
On the day of completion you can pick up the keys from your estate agent but this can only be done when the sellers solicitors inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be given over. Subsequently you can inform the removal men that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to suggest a particular removal company but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Harlow or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in Harlow.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Harlow. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Coventry BS have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
Given that your lender is Coventry BS your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Coventry BS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Coventry BS where a lease fails to meet these requirements. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not restricted to Harlow.
Planning on purchasing a flat in Harlow. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Harlow conveyancing practitioner is on the Skipton conveyancing panel.
I got the keys to my apartment on 11 January and the transaction details is not yet registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Harlow said it should be dealt with in less than a month. Are transfers in Harlow uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Harlow is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. At present approximately 80% of such applications are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration occurs once the buyer has moved in to the property thus an expedited registration is not always top priority but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Harlow is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Harlow are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Harlow you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Harlow may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
