I am planning to move house in June. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Church Stretton. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen before I stumbled across this site.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from your selling agent but this should only take place when the vendors solicitors advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. You will need to tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to suggest a specific removal company but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Church Stretton or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Church Stretton.
Is it the case that all Church Stretton solicitor practices on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Virgin Money approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Many banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the organisation would be overseen by the CLC.
We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Barclays. Church Stretton conveyancing solicitors were instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Barclays?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Barclays completed the survey? Have you advised Barclays as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Barclays conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I am purchasing my first flat in Church Stretton benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about the side-deal as it could impact my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I am using a search engine for the term conveyancing in Church Stretton it shows results of numerous solicitorsin the vicinity. With so much choice what is the best way to find the right property lawyer for my move?

I work for a busy estate agency in Church Stretton where we see a few leasehold sales jeopardised due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received conflicting advice from local Church Stretton conveyancing solicitors. Please can you confirm whether the seller of a flat can start the lease extension formalities for the buyer?
Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer can avoid having to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.
Alternatively, it may be possible to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
I invested in buying a garden flat in Church Stretton, conveyancing was carried out 9 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding properties in Church Stretton with over 90 years remaining are worth £202,000. The ground rent is £60 charged once a year. The lease expires on 21st October 2076
With just 57 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £28,500 and £33,000 plus legals.
The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
