I am aiming to move house in June. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Loughton. Conveyancing firm was found prior to coming across your website.

On the day of completion you can collect the house keys from your estate agent however this can only happen once the vendors solicitors confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. Subsequently you will need to tell 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 Loughton or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Loughton.

It is unclear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Loughton bank branch on a couple of occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Loughton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend based on their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.

Your conveyancer must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 conditions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Loughton. My mortgage broker suggested a property lawyer. I paid an on account payment of £225. A couple of days later, the conveyancer called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Barclays panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

The deeds to our home can not be found. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Loughton 4 years ago no longer exist. What do I do?

You no longer need to have the physical deeds to evidence that you own the land or property, given that the Land Registry hold details of all registered land or property electronically.

I am using a search engine for the term conveyancing in Loughton it reveals numerous solicitorsin the area. With so much choice what is the best way to find the right conveyancing solicitor for the sale of my house?

The best method of choosing a suitable conveyancer is via trusted referral, so seek the guidance of colleagues and those you trust who have purchased a property in Loughton or the local estate agent or financial adviser. Fees for conveyancing in Loughton differ, so it's a good idea to request at least three estimates from different companies. Make sure that you clarify what costs in the quote includes.

We have been informed by many estate agents to expect up to two months for Loughton conveyancing to complete.This was 3 ago. The draft contract was only sent from the vendors lawyer yesterday so now does it countdown?

You should be realistic about timing. Conveyancing in Loughton takes on average about ten weeks. This timeframe is not due to conveyancer being slow and deliberately delay matters. The amount of money involved in buying any residence is so high, the buyer’s conveyancer having to raise a whole range of queries, searches and other checks to protect the purchaser and their lender (if there is to be a mortgage) from expensive, avoidable problems. These investigations involves getting information from various third parties, including other property lawyer, local councils, private companies, building societies and banks. Many of these are efficient. Others aren't. It is worth noting that, no matter how quickly your conveyancing practitioner do their part, if the people you are purchasing from or are selling to aren't ready, nothing can go ahead until they are.
