Finally the sale completed on my house in Yarm last April yet the purchaser is whats apping daily complaining that her conveyancer is waiting to hear from mine. What should have happened now that I have sold?
Post completion of your house sale your solicitor is duty bound to forward the transfer deeds and all additional paperwork to the buyer’s lawyers. Where relevant, your conveyancer must also send confirmation that the mortgage has been redeemed to the purchasers solicitors. There is unlikely to be post completion steps just for conveyancing in Yarm.
My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Yarm. Conveyancing is needed. What happens now?
Now that you have exchanged you must appoint a conveyancing practitioner as a matter of urgency as you are facing a pending deadline in which to complete the purchase.

You should pass this on to the solicitor working for you ASAP. You also need to ensure that that you have the requisite funding in place to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Yarm. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in October. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in October. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be affected by that. Some mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this requirement principally exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

The benefit of a high street Yarm conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to sign documents, present your identification documents and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local intelligence which is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have instructed your friend and on the whole were impressed that must trump using an unfamiliar Yarm conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being local.
