Our lawyers will update you on progress and keep you informed. Should you need to phone the firm you will be sure who to ask for and we'll ensure you're not left wondering what's going on.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a first time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Royton. Do I pick up the keys to the property on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Royton?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Royton. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the completion advance to the owner’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to collect the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Yorkshire BS. Is it usual for Yorkshire BS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Royton is approved on their conveyancing panel? Yorkshire BS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Yorkshire BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Yorkshire BS have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a house in Royton has been accepted, now what?
Your estate agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the conveyancing practitioners are on the bank’s panel). Call up Yorkshire BS or the broker and finish off any appropriate forms. Yorkshire BS will appoint a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or vendor to arrange a slot for the valuation to happen. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a week to receive the mortgage offer. Yorkshire BS will send the offer to you and your property lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Royton.

We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent advised that the vendor will only go ahead if we use their preferred lawyers as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Royton
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this request. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is going to damage their objectives. Try to communicate with the vendors directly and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to use your preferred Royton conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a kickback or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by senior management.
