We are approaching an exchange on a flat in Aldridge and my parents have transferred the 10% deposit to my lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has not come from me my solicitor needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the mortgage company he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the lender about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?
The conveyancing practitioner is duty bound to check with mortgage company to make sure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only notify this to your lender if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
I am aiming to move house in February. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Aldridge. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across this website.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the house keys from your property agent however this should only happen after the previous owners conveyancers advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. You can tell the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a specific removal company but can assist you in choosing a conveyancing in Aldridge or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Aldridge.
I happen to be the only recipient of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Aldridge. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in November. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in November. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be caught by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this provision primarily exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.
Is there a list of Yorkshire BS panel solicitors in Aldridge on the Building Society Association’s Website?
No. There is no such facility on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of lenders make their panel listings available on the web.

Am I right to be suspicious by third parties that I am dealing with are recommending an internet conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Aldridge conveyancing company?
As with many service providers, often suggestions from relatives can be extremely useful or valuable. But there are many players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may suggest lawyers to appoint. Sometimes the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there might be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to appoint your own lawyer. You need to be aware that the majority of mortgage providers specify a panel list of conveyancers you have to use for the mortgage aspect of your house move.
I am 17 days into a residential purchase having been referred to conveyancers by the high street agent to handle our conveyancing in Aldridge. I am am extremely disappointed with the quality of service. Can you help me find new solicitors?
They would have to be very poor in order to consider replacing them. Has the mortgage offer been sent? If so you must advise them of the new solicitor and have the loan are issued to the new lawyers. Your conveyancer needs to be on the mortgage company panel to avoid added charges and delays. That should be your first question of the new lawyers.
