I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and have to be out of my rented apartment in Bedford by 25/5/2021. Conveyancing for my house purchase is underway. Is it possible to complete in six weeks as I wish to avoid having to move into temporary accommodation?

At what point does exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in Bedford and am I required to attend the lawyers office?
If you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Bedford you are invited in to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with supply a nationwide conveyancing service and provide just as diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The executing of the contract is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the firm to address the formalities at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Bedford)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I have todaybecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Bedford for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I check that the property is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest way to see if the premises is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Bedford conveyancing specialists.
