It is a dozen years since I purchased my home in Great Missenden. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been instructed on the sale but I am unable to track down my title documents. Is this a problem?
Don’t worry too much. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be with your mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who acted in your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers procuring current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Great Missenden relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is not registered it is more tricky but is resolvable.
We're in Great Missenden, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is Leeds Building Society , and our solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no solicitor should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

I am planning to move property in April. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Great Missenden. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen before I stumbled across your page.
On the day of completion you can pick up the house keys from your property agent but this should only occur once the vendors lawyers advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be given over. After that you will need to tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to recommend a particular removal company but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Great Missenden or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Great Missenden.
