I have given 8 weeks notice to my existing landlord and have to vacate my let out flat in Seven Sisters by 20/5/2020. Conveyancing for my house purchase is progressing. Can I complete in three weeks as don't want to have to find short term accommodation?
Generally one should not give notice on a rental unless exchange of contracts has taken place. If you have not already done so, speak to your conveyancer and ask them to they cajole the owners lawyers, try to an acceptable time-line that everyone will aim to achieve

My friend recommended that if I am buying in Seven Sisters I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is usually included in the estimate for your Seven Sisters conveyancing searches. It is not a small report of more than thirty pages, listing and setting out significant information about Seven Sisters around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Seven Sisters Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Seven Sisters.
five months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Seven Sisters took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Should I go with a Seven Sisters conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am buying? We have a good friend who can deal with the conveyancing but they are based a couple of hundredmiles away.
The benefit of a local Seven Sisters conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to execute documents, present your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. Having local Seven Sisters know how is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who used your friend and in the main were happy that must surpass using an unknown Seven Sisters conveyancing solicitor just because they are local.
I was advised by my mortgage company that their panel conveyancers operate no completion no charge basis for conveyancing in Seven Sisters. Our purchase did not proceed yet the solicitors want search fees! They say the fees are nothing to do with their fees!
By offering "no completion no fee" Seven Sisters conveyancing practices are waiving their charges for any work carried out. We should make it clear that this is not to be regarded as an insurance scheme. you will still be expected to cover any charges that your lawyer has expended for you for example Seven Sisters local authority searches
