Who do I give the appliance warranties to if they are being left at the property I’m selling?
If you are leaving what is generally termed ‘white goods’ at the property you are selling, which are still in warranty, the documentation should be given to your solicitor so that any warranties can be given to the buyer’s solicitor as part of the contract.
Note that, should you be leaving any electrical (or other) items at the property, this should be made clear on the Fixtures and Fittings Form (TA10) and agreed as early as possible between you and the buyers, particularly if you want financial recompense in so doing.
What particular searches does a conveyancing solicitor in Cannington order when buying a Cannington building?
The normal legal procedure will be to get Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental and Tin Mining Search and, depending on certain criteria, special local Cannington searches for example Official Search of Whole or Part without Priority (OS3).
Are the doctors/dentists/schools oversubscribed in the area I want to move to?
Although your conveyancing solicitor may have some personal knowledge of these critical factors, they are not part of the conveyancing process, so will not form part of the contract.
If aspects such as how likely you’ll get into a surgery or school are important to you, it is worth factoring this in at an early stage when you are researching the areas into which you want to move. You can also glean some facts from the estate agent representing properties where you want to move, too. You might also like to contact the surgeries or schools for further information.

If I’m putting my furniture and other things in storage, will the process take longer?
There shouldn’t be any reason why your move would take longer than a standard removal if you are pitting your belongings into storage. In fact, in some instances, it might be beneficial for the chain and your completion on the sale, since you are likely to incur fewer delays in the process because you can put your furniture and other things in storage before the event.
Whatever your plans, it’s worth mentioning them to your conveyancing solicitor so that they know the logistics on the day of completion, and may even be able to provide advice and pointers on what to consider before the day to ensure things move more smoothly.
