We are aiming to move house in February. Should my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Shildon. Conveyancing solicitor was found before I stumbled across this page.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the house keys from the property agent however this should only occur after the previous owners lawyers advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be collected. You can inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal company but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Shildon or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in Shildon.
Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Shildon. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?
Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

My fiance and I are planning to purchase a four bedroom ground floor flatin Shildon with a residential mortgage from a mortgage company. We have a conveyancer in Shildon but our mortgage company inform us now that she’s not approved on their "panel". Apparently we need to choose from the our mortgage company panel firms or stay with our Shildon solicitor and incur the extra fees for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that our mortgage company use our Shildon lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage company home loan offered to you is subject to conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the lender's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most banks had open panels, including many conveyancing solicitors in Shildon : a mortgagee could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
