We are planning to move house in November. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Bovey Tracey. Conveyancing solicitor was found before I stumbled across this site.

On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from your estate agent but this should only occur when the vendors solicitors inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. You should tell the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Bovey Tracey or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in Bovey Tracey.

We had selected solicitors locally in Bovey Tracey on the Coventry BS solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me a separate sum for dealing with the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Coventry BS?

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancer may charge a fee for this. The charge is not set by Coventry BS but by your Bovey Tracey conveyancer. Some firms on the Coventry BS panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but many practices include it on their overall fee.

I've read lots of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Bovey Tracey solicitor - who is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Yorkshire BS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Yorkshire BS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Bovey Tracey surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

How does conveyancing in Bovey Tracey differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Bovey Tracey approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because developers in Bovey Tracey usually acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Bovey Tracey or who has acted in the same development.
