I am due to move house in April. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Sea Mills. Conveyancing lawyer was organised before I stumbled across this site.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from your estate agent but this should only occur once the vendors solicitors inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be given over. After that you will need to tell the removal company that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to recommend a specific removal organisation but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Sea Mills or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Sea Mills.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Skipton are being problematic. The Sea Mills solicitor who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Skipton are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Skipton have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Skipton have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Skipton may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I own a 4 bedroom Georgian house in Sea Mills. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Virgin Money. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. Is it worth asking Virgin Money to clarify?
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease.

It is not completely unheard of in Sea Mills and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers.

I have just started marketing my basement flat in Sea Mills. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have just had a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the service charge as normal as all rents and maintenance charges should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

My uncle purchased his flat in Sea Mills ten years ago. He has been married, divorced and in recent months got remarried. He will be selling the flat in a few weeks. I suspect that he will just be requested to provide a copy of his marriage certificates to the property lawyer however he is anxious it could hold up the sale of the property. Is it worth updating the title documents for the house?
It is not absolutely necessary to bring up to date the register on the basis that you have the evidence needed to demonstrate how the change of name resulted.
Any buyer’s lawyer will examine the registered information and need evidence by way of proof of the name change e.g. marriage certificates.
