I am planning to move home in June. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Papworth Everard. Conveyancing lawyer was organised prior to coming across your site.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from your estate agent but this can only occur after the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over. Subsequently you can advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal company but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Papworth Everard or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in Papworth Everard.
My offer was accepted on a property in Papworth Everard on 4/1/2021, valuation was booked 2 days after, all came back fine. Solicitor instructed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Barclays and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Are Barclays entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Barclays to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Barclays conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Having digested plenty of house buying guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Papworth Everard solicitor - who is on the Santander conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
Santander will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Santander will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Papworth Everard surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Papworth Everard - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
