We are aiming to move house in September. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Penyffordd. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across this site.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from the selling agent however this can only occur after the previous owners lawyers inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. You will need to advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Penyffordd or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Penyffordd.
I have a mortgage with Virgin Money for my property in Penyffordd. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Virgin Money?
Virgin Money must be informed of your intention before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Virgin Money’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Virgin Money 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 Virgin Money directly. You need not do this via a Virgin Money conveyancing panel solicitor.
Virgin Money have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a apartment in Penyffordd has been accepted, what happens next?
The estate agent will want to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the lawyers are on the lender’s approved list). Telephone Virgin Money or the financial adviser and complete any outstanding forms. Virgin Money will instruct a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or seller to book a slot for the valuation to happen. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about ten days to receive the mortgage offer. Virgin Money will issue the offer to you and your conveyancers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Penyffordd.
How does conveyancing in Penyffordd differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Penyffordd come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because builders in Penyffordd tend to purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Penyffordd or who has acted in the same development.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Penyffordd. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the unexpired term of the lease.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Penyffordd - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
