In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Aldridge? Is this really necessary?
It is indeed that case that these requests have nothing to do with conveyancing in Aldridge. However these days you will not be able to proceed with any conveyancing transaction without first submitting evidence of your identity. Ordinarily this takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence as well as a utility bill. Please note that if you are supplying your driving licence as evidence of identification it needs to be both the paper section as well as the photo card part, one is not sufficient without the other.
Evidence of your source of monies is necessary under Money Laundering Regulations. Please do not be offended when when this is requested of you as your conveyancing solicitor must retain this information on record. Your Aldridge conveyancing solicitor will need to see evidence of proof of funds prior to accepting any monies from you into their client account and they may also ask additional queries regarding the source of monies.

I am planning to move property in November. Should my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Aldridge. Conveyancing lawyer was organised before I stumbled across this website.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from the property agent however this can only take place after the previous owners conveyancers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be given over. Subsequently you can advise the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal company but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in Aldridge or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Aldridge.
The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Aldridge. 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 banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.
How does conveyancing in Aldridge differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Aldridge approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because builders in Aldridge usually acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Aldridge or who has acted in the same development.

There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complex. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing solicitors who use the act for protection and handle your commercial conveyancing in Aldridge
