It is a dozen years since I bought my property in Dorridge. Conveyancing lawyers have now been instructed on the sale but I can't find the deeds. Will this cause complications?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be kept by the lender or they could be in the possession of the solicitor who oversaw the purchase. Secondly in most cases the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Dorridge relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
I am aiming to move house in September. Should my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Dorridge. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen before I stumbled across this site.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from the estate agent however this should only happen after the vendors lawyers confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be given over. After that you can inform the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal company but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Dorridge or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Dorridge.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed flat in Dorridge. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have recently received a quarterly service charge invoice – what should I do?
It best that you clear the service charge as normal given that all rents and service payments should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
