I am planning to move property in August. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Sandhurst. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen prior to coming across this website.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the house keys from the estate agent but this should only happen after the sellers conveyancers confirm to the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be handed over. Subsequently you should advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can help you choose a conveyancing in Sandhurst or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Sandhurst.
My partner and I have arranged the release of further funds on our mortgage from Santander as we want to carry out a loft conversion to our house in Sandhurst. Are we obliged to appoint a bricks and mortar Sandhurst solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
Santander would not normally require a member of their approved list of lawyers to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Santander panel.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Coventry BS. Is it usual for Coventry BS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Sandhurst is approved on their conveyancing panel? Coventry BS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Coventry BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Sandhurst.

I'm refinancing my existing house to a BTL mortgage with Barnsley Building Society and I will use the rest of the raised equity as a deposit on further property. The location we are interested in is Sandhurst. Will your solicitors be able to act for the two lenders and link together the conveyances?

We are in the middle of purchasing a house in Sandhurst. Conveyancing lawyer has called to say the property is "Leasehold". Does this adversely affect our lender’s valuation?
Sandhurst conveyancing does not usually involve leasehold houses. The crucial consideration here is the unexpired lease term and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a nominal rent, it's virtually freehold, so it’s unlikely to impact the marketability too much.
At the other end of the spectrum, if it's, say, Sixty years it is bound to have a significant effect on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be acceptable to the mortgage company. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be set out in the lease provided to your conveyancer.
