I have just been advised by my mortgage adviser that my Grove Park property lawyer is not on the bank Solicitor panel. What can I do to be sure that this is correct?
The first thing you need to do is to contact your Grove Park lawyer directly. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to advise you of the situation. If they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
My wife and I have lately acquired a house in Grove Park. We have noticed several problems with the property which we consider were missed in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Grove Park?
It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are unique to conveyancing in Grove Park. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated during the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a property owner fills in a form known as a SPIF. answers provided is inaccurate, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the seller for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Grove Park.
It is 10 years ago since I acquired my home in Grove Park. Conveyancing solicitors have now been appointed on the sale but I can't locate my title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?
You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be retained by the mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who handled the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Grove Park relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it is more of a problem but is resolvable.

We are aiming to move house in March. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Grove Park. Conveyancing solicitor was organised prior to coming across this website.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from the property agent but this should only take place once the vendors conveyancers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. You can inform the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can help you choose a conveyancing in Grove Park or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Grove Park.
How does conveyancing in Grove Park differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Grove Park approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because builders in Grove Park usually buy 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Grove Park or who has acted in the same development.
