I am planning to move home in July. Will my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in South Ruislip. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen before I stumbled across this website.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the house keys from your selling agent however this can only take place when the vendors lawyers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be handed over. Subsequently you will need to inform the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal company but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in South Ruislip or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in South Ruislip.
My wife and I have arranged the release of further monies on our mortgage from Kent Reliance as we intend to conduct alterations to our property in South Ruislip. Do we need to appoint a local South Ruislip solicitor on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Kent Reliance would not normally instruct firms on their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Kent Reliance panel.

Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately ten days to get a mortgage offer. Nottingham will issue the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in South Ruislip.
It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in South Ruislip completed. 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 property 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.
I've recently found out 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 straight forward, chain free conveyancing. South Ruislip is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in South Ruislip are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside South Ruislip you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in South Ruislip may decide 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 residence.

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such matters? Can you recommend a South Ruislip conveyancing firm to act on my behalf?
in cases where there is a missing landlord or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the LVT to calculate the premium.
An example of a Lease Extension case for a South Ruislip flat is Flat 72 Queens Walk in January 2013. The Tribunals calculated the premium payable to be £22,090. This case related to 1 flat. The unexpired lease term was 53.26 years.

You will encounter difficulties when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property.

If a mortgage lender believes that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to withdraw.
