Completed the sale of my flat in Clowne last March but our buyer keeps telephoning daily to say his conveyancer needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale legalities now that I have sold?
Post completion of your house sale your conveyancer should send the transfer deeds and all supplemental paperwork to the purchaser's solicitors. If applicable, your solicitor must also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been paid off to the buyers conveyancers. There is unlikely to be post completion tasks specific conveyancing in Clowne.

We are due to move home in January. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Clowne. Conveyancing solicitor was organised before I stumbled across this website.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the keys from the selling agent however this should only be done once the previous owners lawyers inform the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be passed over. You can advise the removal company that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to recommend a specific removal organisation but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Clowne or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Clowne.
I have paid off my mortgage with UBS. I assume I don't need a Clowne lawyer on the UBS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your UBS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the UBS mortgage from the register. UBS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where UBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- UBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so

We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent advised that the vendor will only proceed if we use the agent's recommended conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local conveyancer used to conveyancing in Clowne

I am an executor of my recently deceased mother’s Will, with a bungalow in Clowne which is to be marketed. The property has never been registered at the Land Registry and I'm told that many estate agents will insist that it is completed before they will move forward. What's the mechanism for this?
In the situation you refer to it seems advisable to seek to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. HMLR’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
