We are planning to move home in April. Should my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Whittlesey. Conveyancing firm was found prior to coming across this page.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Whittlesey. 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 Care Department at head office. Ordinarily 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, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Bank of Ireland are being pedantic. The Whittlesey solicitor who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Bank of Ireland are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Bank of Ireland have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Bank of Ireland have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Bank of Ireland may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

My friend recommended that where I am buying in Whittlesey I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

It is a large report of more than thirty pages, listing and setting out significant information about Whittlesey around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Whittlesey.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Whittlesey is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Whittlesey are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Whittlesey 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 Whittlesey may determine 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.

Taking into account that I will soon spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on a garden flat in Whittlesey I would like to talk to a lawyer regarding theconveyancing before instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?

Absolutely - we would be pleased to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the lawyer who will be carrying out your property ownership legalities in Whittlesey.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a file number. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for residential conveyancing in Whittlesey should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.
