My wife and I are purchasing a newly built duplex in Mobberley and my lawyer is telling me that she has to the bank to disclose incentives from the seller. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to sign contracts and my preference is not to delay deal. is my lawyer playing by the book?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancer. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
Why do I have to pay up front for conveyancing in Mobberley?
If you are buying a property in Mobberley your lawyer will request that you put them with monies to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. Generally this is asked for to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. If any down payment is payable against the purchase price then this should be needed immediately prior to contracts are exchanged. Any further balance that is due should be transferred shortly before completion.
I am due to move house in June. Should my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Mobberley. Conveyancing firm was found prior to coming across your site.
On the day of completion you can collect the keys from your selling agent but this should only take place when the sellers lawyers advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. After that you can inform the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal company but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Mobberley or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in Mobberley.

I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Mobberley. My financial adviser recommended their conveyancers. I paid an advanced payment of £225. Shortly after, the conveyancer called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Santander conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Santander panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
I purchased my apartment on 14 September and the transaction details are still not registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Mobberley advises it will be recorded inside ten days. Are properties in Mobberley uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Mobberley registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any other parties. Currently approximately 80% of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration is effected once the new owner is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not typically primary concern but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

My conveyancer (approximately 300 kilometers from mehas requested that I execute a statutory declaration prior to the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing solicitor in Mobberley who can attest and place their company stamp on the document?
strictly speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are based in Mobberley
