When will exchange of contracts take place for domestic conveyancing in Norbiton and do I need to attend the solicitors branch?
If you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Norbiton you are invited in to sign the paperwork. However, the lender approved solicitors we work with provide a nationwide conveyancing service and provide just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The signing of the sale agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the solicitor to officially exchange when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Norbiton)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as FTB of a ground floor flat in Norbiton. Do I receive the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Norbiton?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the vendor’s solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be called to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
I have a mortgage with UBS for my property in Norbiton. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. If I am intending 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 prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of UBS’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 UBS directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a UBS conveyancing panel firm.
My sealed bid on a house in Norbiton has been agreed to, the sellers do however have an associated purchase. The sellers have placed an offer on somewhere, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Norbiton. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with UBS started?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Norbiton conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to check that your lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some buyers would apply for a home loan with UBS and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their conveyancer to proceed with searches.

Been on the hunt for a property lawyer for leasehold sale conveyancing in Norbiton. I'm selling, uncomplicated no mortgage to discharge, no rush, no onward chain.
