We are due to complete on the purchase of a property in Binfield but as a consequence of damage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree recompense from the vendor in the sum of £3k taking the form of a adjustment in the price.

I am planning to move house in August. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Binfield. Conveyancing solicitor was found before I stumbled across your website.
On the day of completion you can pick up the keys from the estate agent however this can only take place once the previous owners solicitors confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be collected. After that you can tell the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Binfield or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Binfield.
We previously chose solicitors with offices in Binfield on the Coventry BS solicitor panel. They are now charging me a supplemental sum for the legal aspects of the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Coventry BS?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your property lawyer is entitled to charge a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Coventry BS but by your Binfield solicitor. Plenty of firms on the Coventry BS panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of practices include it on their overall fee.

Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. At present roughly 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Historically registration occurs once the buyer is living at the premises so post completion formalities is not usually an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
