Finally the sale completed on my house in Crowle last August but our buyer keeps whats apping every few hours to moan that their lawyer is waiting to hear from mysolicitor. What should my lawyer have done following completion?
Following your disposal your solicitor should deliver the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's conveyancer. If applicable, your solicitor must also evidence that the home loan has been paid off to the buyers lawyers. There is unlikely to be post completion procedures specific conveyancing in Crowle.
I am aiming to move house in April. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Crowle. Conveyancing solicitor was found prior to coming across your website.
On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the property agent however this should only happen when the vendors solicitors inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be given over. After that you will need to inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. We do not suggest a particular removal company but can assist you in choosing a conveyancing in Crowle or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Crowle.
We are getting a further advance on our mortgage from Skipton as we intend to conduct alterations to our house in Crowle. Do we need to select a local Crowle solicitor on the Skipton conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
Skipton don't usually appoint a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Skipton conveyancing panel.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Virgin Money. I assume I don't need a Crowle conveyancer on the Virgin Money panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Virgin Money 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 Virgin Money mortgage from the register. Virgin Money, 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 Virgin Money has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Virgin Money has instructed the Land Registry to do so
My colleague advised me that if I am buying in Crowle I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?
A search of this type is sometimes quoted for as part of the standard Crowle conveyancing searches. It is a large report of about 40 pages, listing and detailing important information about Crowle around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Crowle Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information regarding Crowle.
My wife and I purchased a terraced Victorian house in Crowle. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Alliance & Leicester . I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Crowle and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.
Given that I am about to part with hundreds of thousands of pounds on 3 bedroom house in Crowle I would like to talk to a solicitor concerning theconveyancing in advance of appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
This is something that we recommend - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the lawyer who will be doing your conveyancing in Crowle.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a case number. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are quoted for your conveyancing in Crowle should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.
