Me and my fiancee are buying our first home. Our property lawyer has texted usto ask if we want to order additional conveyancing searches. Unfortunately we are clueless as to what's recommended for conveyancing in Bartley Green
The scope of Bartley Green conveyancing searches should be dictated entirely on the premises, the location, the possibility of any of these risks, your knowledge of the region and risks, your general attitude to risk. What is important is that you properly appreciate what information the searches could supply. Then you can decide if you consider that you need that information. If unclear, ask the solicitor to recommend.
Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the Principality Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Bartley Green?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
We are aiming to move house in January. Should my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Bartley Green. Conveyancing lawyer was organised prior to coming across your site.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the keys from your property agent but this should only happen when the sellers lawyers confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be given over. After that you should tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. We do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in Bartley Green or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Bartley Green.
Can you help - my lawyer advises that restrictive coveneant insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Bartley Green?
The appropriate level of restrictive coveneant indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Barclays and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Bartley Green. I have a mortgage agreed with Lloyds. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Lloyds, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.
