I require conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (6 years old) in Emersons Green. Almost all the appartments are already sold. Is it really necessary to order conveyancing searches for my conveyancing in Emersons Green?

I am aiming to move home in February. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Emersons Green. Conveyancing solicitor was organised prior to coming across this site.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the house keys from the selling agent but this should only occur once the vendors solicitors confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. After that you should inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to suggest a particular removal organisation but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Emersons Green or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Emersons Green.
We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Kent Reliance. Emersons Green conveyancing lawyers were selected. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Kent Reliance?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Kent Reliance done the valuation? Have you informed Kent Reliance as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
It is not clear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Emersons Green bank branch on numerous occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Emersons Green conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?
As long as the solicitor is on the lender panel, they must follow the CML Handbook requirements for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
