This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a ground floor flat in Wollaton. Do I collect the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Wollaton?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be able to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
I have paid off my mortgage with Kent Reliance. I assume I don't need a Wollaton lawyer on the Kent Reliance panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Kent Reliance mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Kent Reliance mortgage from the register. Kent Reliance, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Kent Reliance has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Kent Reliance has instructed the Land Registry to do so
Our sealed bid on a semi in Wollaton has been agreed to, the vendors do however have an associated purchase. The vendors have placed an offer on on an apartment, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Wollaton. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Kent Reliance going?
It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Wollaton conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your property lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Regarding the next steps this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many buyers will apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancer to move forward with searches.
