I am planning to move house in July. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Royston. Conveyancing solicitor was organised prior to coming across this site.
On the day of completion you can pick up the keys from your estate agent however this should only happen when the vendors solicitors confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be given over. After that you will need to advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in Royston or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Royston.

Me and my brother own a terraced Edwardian house in Royston. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and The Royal Bank of Scotland. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Royston and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.
