Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as a first time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Enderby. Do I receive the keys to the house on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Enderby?
On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Enderby. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.
I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Aldermore. Is it usual for Aldermore to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Enderby is approved on their conveyancing panel? Aldermore have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I have instructed a Enderby property lawyer having checked that they are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Nottingham will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Nottingham will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Enderby surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
Just bought a semi-detached house in Enderby , how long should it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Enderby conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain that my ownership is recorded.
As far as conveyancing in Enderby is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. At present roughly three quarters of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration is effected once the purchaser has moved in to the premises so 'speed' is not usually primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
How does conveyancing in Enderby differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Enderby approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Enderby typically purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Enderby or who has acted in the same development.

My step-mother purchased her house in Enderby in 2006. She has got married, divorced and is now remarried. She now intends to the sell the Enderby property. I suspect that she will just be requested to provide a copy of the marriage papers to the solicitor however she is concerned it could delay the house sale. Should she instruct a conveyancing practitioner to update the land title details for the house?
It is not absolutely necessary to update the title for the property as long as you have the evidence needed to show how the change of name resulted.
The buyer’s conveyancing practitioner should examine the title details and requisition evidence to establish the change of name for example marriage documentation.
