Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Beeston. Do I collect the keys to the house on completion from my solicitor? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Beeston?
On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Beeston. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the seller's solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be invited to collect the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen early afternoon.
I have paid off my mortgage with Aldermore. I assume I don't need a Beeston conveyancing practitioner on the Aldermore panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Aldermore mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Aldermore mortgage from the register. Aldermore, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Aldermore has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Aldermore has instructed the Land Registry to do so
At last I have had an offer on a flat in Beeston accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have put an offer on a flat, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats booked. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Beeston. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Leeds Building Society going?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Beeston conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is check that your solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society approved list. As to the next steps this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market many home buyers would apply for the mortgage with Leeds Building Society and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with the conveyancing in Beeston.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold house in Beeston. Conveyancing and The Royal Bank of Scotland mortgage went though with no issue. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1997. The conveyancing solicitor in Beeston who previously acted has now retired. Any advice?
The first thing you should do is make enquiries of the Land Registry to make sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to incur the fees of a Beeston conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
