I am aiming to move home in January. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Knottingley. Conveyancing firm was found before I stumbled across this website.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Knottingley. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I would like to complain about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.

At last I have had an offer on a maisonette in Knottingley agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have put an offer on on an apartment, but it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other properties booked. I have selected a local conveyancing solicitor in Knottingley. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Kent Reliance going?

It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Knottingley conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should check that your conveyancer is on the Kent Reliance approved list. Concerning the subsequent stages this very much depends on the specifics of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market some home buyers would apply for a home loan with Kent Reliance and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their property lawyer to press on with searches.

My wife and I purchased a renovated Georgian property in Knottingley. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Aldermore. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same property. Is it worth asking Aldermore to clarify?

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Knottingley and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.
