Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a garden flat in Whitefield. Do I receive the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Whitefield?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the owner’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

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 simple, chain free conveyancing. Whitefield is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?

Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Whitefield you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Whitefield 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.

We're new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent told us that the seller will only proceed if we instruct the agent's recommended conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Whitefield
It is improbable the owners are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make the point that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to use your own,trusted Whitefield conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will give their estate agent a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by HQ.
