I am planning to move property in April. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Pentonville. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen prior to coming across your page.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from the selling agent however this should only be done when the vendors conveyancers confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be passed over.

My fiancee and I are in the process of looking at apartments in Pentonville and I am about to put in an offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Nationwide.

You should start requesting conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their contact information on to the estate agent.

After months of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Pentonville. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their conveyancing practitioner. I paid an upfront payment of £150.

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Coventry BS 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.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Pentonville. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Pentonville - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars 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.
