I am planning to move house in May. Will my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Nottinghamshire. Conveyancing lawyer was organised before I stumbled across this page.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the keys from the property agent but this can only be done when the vendors conveyancers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. After that you should inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. We do not recommend a particular removal company but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Nottinghamshire or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Nottinghamshire.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Nottinghamshire property lawyer having checked that they are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Nationwide will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Nationwide 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 property lawyer 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 Nottinghamshire postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Nationwide, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Nottinghamshire.
At last I have had an offer on a flat in Nottinghamshire accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on a flat, however it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have selected a local conveyancing solicitor in Nottinghamshire. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Clydesdale started?
It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Nottinghamshire conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your property lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Regarding the next phase this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some buyers will apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Nottinghamshire.
