We are due to move house in May. Should my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Ramsey. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen before I stumbled across your site.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the keys from your property agent however this should only be done when the sellers lawyers advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over. After that you can inform the removal company that you are ready to move in. We do not suggest a specific removal company but can assist you in choosing a conveyancing in Ramsey or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in Ramsey.
We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Virgin Money. Ramsey conveyancing solicitors were chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Virgin Money?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Virgin Money conducted the valuation? Have you informed Virgin Money as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
Our sealed bid on a semi in Ramsey has been agreed to, the vendors do nevertheless have a connected purchase. The owners have put an offer on a property, however it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other properties booked. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Ramsey. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Virgin Money?
It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Ramsey conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of buyers would apply for a home loan with Virgin Money and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their solicitor to move forward with searches.

How does conveyancing in Ramsey differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Ramsey come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because new home sellers in Ramsey typically purchase the land, 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 Ramsey or who has acted in the same development.

Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of leases.
We expect to complete the disposal of our £375,000 garden flat in Ramsey on Thursday in a week. The landlords agents has quoted £348 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and 3 years statements of service charge. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Ramsey?
Ramsey conveyancing on leasehold apartments often necessitates the purchaser’s lawyer sending enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to respond to such questions the majority will be willing to assist. They are entitled to invoice a reasonable charge for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is £350, in some transactions it is above £800. The administration charge levied by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of rights and obligations in respect of administration fees, without which the invoice is not strictly payable. In reality one has no option but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to sell the property.
