We are due to move property in December. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Weymouth. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen prior to coming across this site.

On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from your estate agent however this should only happen when the vendors lawyers advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be released. After that you should tell the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal organisation but can assist you in choosing a conveyancing in Weymouth or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Weymouth.

Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Weymouth. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

Planning on purchasing a apartment in Weymouth. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Weymouth conveyancer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.

Various online forums that I have frequented warn that are the main cause of delay in Weymouth house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the common causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Weymouth.

My husband and I are new to the buying process - agreed a price, yet the estate agent informed us that the owners will only go ahead if we instruct their recommended lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Weymouth

It is highly unlikely the sellers are driving this. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to use your preferred Weymouth conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide the estate agent a referral fee or achieve conveyancing targets pre-set by HQ.
