Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time buyer of a ground floor flat in Princes Risborough. Do I collect the keys to the house on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Princes Risborough?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the purchase money to the owner’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be invited to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.
I have been told by my conveyancer that defective lease insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Princes Risborough?

I moved into my apartment on 16 October and my personal details is not yet registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Princes Risborough advises it would be concluded in less than a month. Are properties in Princes Risborough uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Princes Risborough registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any other persons or bodies. Currently roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Registration occurs after the purchaser has moved in to the property therefore post completion formalities is not usually primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

My sealed bid on house in Princes Risborough was agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on somewhere, however it’s not yet agreed to, and has viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Princes Risborough. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Kent Reliance started with Kent Reliance?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is an associated chain given your reluctance to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Princes Risborough conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should check that your solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much depends on the specifics of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market the majority of buyers would apply for a home loan with Kent Reliance and pay for the survey and only if it comes back ok would they ask their conveyancer to move forward with searches.
