I am aiming to move house in October. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Ludgershall. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen before I stumbled across this site.

On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the property agent however this should only occur once the vendors lawyers advise the agent that they have the completion monies 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 particular removal organisation but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Ludgershall or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in Ludgershall.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Ludgershall. A rare 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 follow the formal instructions outlined in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Coventry BS. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Coventry BS where a lease fails to comply with these specifications. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Ludgershall.

The mortgage over my property is with UBS for my property in Ludgershall. Conveyancing has been completed 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 UBS?

UBS must be informed of your intention in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of UBS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that UBS 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 UBS directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a UBS conveyancing panel solicitor.

Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Similar flats in Ludgershall with a long lease are worth £211,000. The ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2089

With just 67 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £10,500 and £12,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations.
