Completed the sale of my flat in Eynsham last April yet the purchaser is texting me to moan that their conveyancer needs to hear from mine. What should my lawyer have done now that I have sold?
Following your sale your conveyancer is duty bound to send the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's solicitors. Depending on the transaction, your solicitor must also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been paid off to the buyers lawyers. There is unlikely to be post completion formalities peculiar conveyancing in Eynsham.
We are due to move house in October. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Eynsham. Conveyancing firm was found before I stumbled across this page.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the house keys from your estate agent but this should only take place when the previous owners lawyers inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you will need to advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. We do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can help you find a conveyancing in Eynsham or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Eynsham.
I am being told by my lawyer that flying freehold insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Eynsham conveyancing?
The right level of flying freehold indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Birmingham Midshires and Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.
I have paid off my mortgage with TSB. I assume I don't need a Eynsham lawyer on the TSB panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your TSB 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 TSB mortgage from the register. TSB, 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 TSB has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- TSB has instructed the Land Registry to do so
