Completed the sale of my flat in Caterham last July yet the purchaser is calling daily complaining that his solicitor needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale legalities now that I have sold?
Following your disposal your conveyancer should forward the transfer deeds and all supplemental paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. If applicable, your conveyancer should also confirm that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been discharged to the purchasers conveyancers. There are no post completion tasks unique to conveyancing in Caterham.

We are about to complete on the purchase a property in Caterham but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have negotiated reparation from the owner of £2k taking the form of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process however my mortgage company will not agree to this. Why were they involved?
Any conveyancer listed on the mortgage company approved list is required to disclose to the lender of any variations to the purchase price. If you prohibit your lawyer to report the price change to your lender then they would have no choice but to discontinue representing you and the bank.
