We are looking to buy a property and need a conveyancing solicitor in Clifton who is on the Nationwide approved panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Nationwide . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Clifton.
I am due to move property in March. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Clifton. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across this page.
On the day of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from your estate agent but this can only happen once the previous owners conveyancers inform the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be released. You can tell the removal company that they can start moving you in. We do not suggest a specific removal company but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Clifton or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Clifton.
How can we know in advance if a Clifton conveyancing solicitor on the Bank of Ireland panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Clifton obtaining recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always recommend that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your transaction.
We expect to receive a DIP from Kent Reliance this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Kent Reliance recommend any Clifton solicitors on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Clifton solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Kent Reliance through the process.

I am buying my first flat in Clifton with a loan from The Royal Bank of Scotland. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The house builders rep told me not to tell my solicitor about this deal as it could impact my loan with The Royal Bank of Scotland. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
Should I stop my mortgage payments with Leeds Building Society as soon as a completion date for my home sale in Clifton has been agreed?
No, you should continue paying any mortgage sums to Leeds Building Society until the mortgage is repaid on completion as part of your Clifton conveyancing.
