I am due to move house in October. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Prestwich. Conveyancing firm was found prior to coming across this website.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the house keys from your estate agent but this should only happen once the sellers lawyers inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you should tell the removal company that they can start moving you in.

I am the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Prestwich. The Prestwich property was put into my name in June. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in June. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be caught by that. Most banks would take a practical view as this provision principally exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as UBS, do Prestwich conveyancers have to pay an annual charge to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are not aware of any bank fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
How does conveyancing in Prestwich differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Prestwich approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Prestwich typically purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Prestwich or who has acted in the same development.
