We are planning to move house in July. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Monmouthshire. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across your site.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the keys from the selling agent however this should only take place after the previous owners solicitors confirm to the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over. You can advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. We do not recommend a particular removal organisation but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Monmouthshire or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in Monmouthshire.
I have paid off my mortgage with Aldermore. I assume I don't need a Monmouthshire property lawyer on the Aldermore panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Aldermore 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 Aldermore mortgage from the register. Aldermore, 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 Aldermore has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Aldermore has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I have instructed a Monmouthshire conveyancer having checked that they are on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Skipton will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Skipton will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Monmouthshire postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Skipton, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Monmouthshire.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Monmouthshire?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Monmouthshire. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
