I am due to move property in June. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Silvertown. Conveyancing solicitor was found before I stumbled across your page.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the keys from your selling agent however this should only occur when the sellers lawyers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be given over. After that you will need to inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal company but can help you find a conveyancing in Silvertown or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Silvertown.
My solicitor has informed me that defective lease insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Silvertown conveyancing?
The appropriate level of defective lease indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between National Westminster Bank and Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Silvertown. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Bank of Ireland have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As your lender is Bank of Ireland your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing instructions outlined in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Bank of Ireland. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Bank of Ireland where a lease does not meet these requirements. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Silvertown.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Silvertown is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Silvertown are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Silvertown you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Silvertown may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
I have been advised by a number of selling agents in Silvertown to find a solicitor on your site. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers over and above another?
We refuse to offer any financial incentive for sending work to this site. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
We are FTB’s just having agreed a price on a property in Silvertown, and need to get solicitors instructed. I have utilised the different rating tools and the quotes are from all over the the UK. Is it necessary to have a Silvertown property lawyer local to our prospective new home? We are content to do all the communicating over the web, but I guess at some stage we will be required to visit the solicitor's office to sign papers?
On the whole there is no requirement to physically visit the office of your conveyancing practitioner, they can post any relevant papers to you, which you can sign and send back. Many buyers and sellers nevertheless opt to instruct a locally based solicitor, but it is not essential for conveyancing in Silvertown.
