Why do I have to pay up front for my conveyancing in Aston?

If you are buying a property in Aston your lawyer will ask you put them with monies to cover the search fees. Normally this is needed to cover the fees of the conveyancing searches. When the down payment is as part of the sale price then this will be required immediately ahead of contracts are exchanged. Any further balance that is needed should be transferred shortly before completion.

I am planning to move property in July. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Aston. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across your website.

On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the keys from your property agent however this can only happen once the sellers lawyers advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be released. Subsequently you can advise the removal men that you are ready to move in. We do not suggest a specific removal company but can help you locate a conveyancing in Aston or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Aston.

I can not fathom if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called my Aston bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Aston conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend in accordance with their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.

Your lawyer has to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I had an offer accepted on a property in Aston on 7/5/2024, valuation was booked five days after, all came back fine. Solicitor appointed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Skipton and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Skipton to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

A relative advised me that if I am buying in Aston I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

We are 17 days into a residential purchase having been referred to conveyancers by the local agent to do our conveyancing in Aston. I am not happy. Could you you assist me in finding new solicitors?

A lawyer would have to be really bad to suggest changing them. Has your mortgage offer been sent? If so you will need to inform them of the new contact details and get the offer are re-issued. Your new conveyancer should be on the banks panel to avoid added costs and delays. That should be your starting point.
