When will exchange of contracts take place for residential conveyancing in North Shields and Tynemouth and am I required to attend the solicitors branch?
If you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in North Shields and Tynemouth you are invited in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the firms we work with offer a countrywide conveyancing service and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email.

A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to officially exchange at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a garden flat in North Shields and Tynemouth. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in North Shields and Tynemouth?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the completion advance to the seller's lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be invited to collect the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
We expect to receive a AIP from Bank of Ireland this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Bank of Ireland recommend any North Shields and Tynemouth solicitors on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint North Shields and Tynemouth solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Bank of Ireland through the process.
I currently have a mortgage with Aldermore for my property in North Shields and Tynemouth. Conveyancing has been completed a year ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Aldermore?
Your original mortgage agreement with Aldermore will provide that you need their approval in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Aldermore’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Aldermore directly. You need not do this via a Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor.
