I do hope you can help me. My North Wembley lawyer is assuring me that he is legally obliged toorder North Wembley conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Virgin Moneysolicitor panel. Is my solicitor right?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a mortgage company your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out North Wembley conveyancing searches.

On the day of completion you can pick up the keys from your selling agent however this should only happen once the vendors conveyancers advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. You should advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. We do not suggest a specific removal organisation but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in North Wembley or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in North Wembley.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in North Wembley off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with UBS. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with UBS, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the UBS conveyancing panel.

I acquired my apartment on 16 August and my personal details is yet to be registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in North Wembley said it will be registered inside ten days. Are transfers in North Wembley particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in North Wembley registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry have to notify any other persons or bodies. At present approximately three quarters of submission are completed within two weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration is effected once the purchaser has moved in to the property so post completion formalities is not usually top priority yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
