When will exchange of contracts occur in domestic conveyancing in Billesdon and do I need to be at the conveyancers office?
Where you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Billesdon you are welcome to come in to sign documents. That being said, the firms we recommend provide a countrywide conveyancing service and provide just as diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not the important part. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the solicitor to address the formalities when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Billesdon)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I am helping my sister sell her flat in Billesdon. Does the conveyancer arrange an energy performance certificate or it is for the owner to coordinate?
After the abolition of HIPs, energy assessments was maintained a mandatory component of moving house. An EPC should be to hand before the property is marketed. It is not as aspect of the sale process that solicitors ordinarily arrange. If you are instructing a Billesdon conveyancing lawyer they may be willing to arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with long established Billesdon energy assessors

I have paid off my mortgage with Clydesdale. I assume I don't need a Billesdon property lawyer on the Clydesdale panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Clydesdale 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 Clydesdale mortgage from the register. Clydesdale, 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 Clydesdale has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Clydesdale has instructed the Land Registry to do so
