When can the exchange of contracts happen for residential conveyancing in Pimlico and am I required to be at the solicitors branch?
If you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Pimlico you are invited in to sign documents. That being said, the firms we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the purchase agreement is not the important part. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the solicitor to address the formalities when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Pimlico)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I am the sole beneficiary of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Pimlico. The Pimlico property was put into my name in January. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in January. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be affected by that. Some mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this obligation principally exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
My wife and I are in the throws of viewing apartments in Pimlico and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a lawyer in place at this point? I will be getting a mortgage with Clydesdale.
It would be prudent to start your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their contact information on to the EA. As you are taking out a mortgage with Clydesdale, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.
The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Pimlico. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
Why is it not possible to complete our conveyancing in Pimlico on May bank holiday?
Because on completion the money needs to be transferred electronically between the banks of the purchaser and owner’s conveyancing practitioner and at present this can only occur on a business day. It is not possible to complete on a weekend either.
