We are anticipating to move from our terraced building just outside Leegomery to a maisonette in Cleobury Mortimer . What is the best point to choose a home removal company?
The ideal point is for home movers to avoid booking a removal company until after everyone has accepted by both parties an absolute move date that occurs after exchange of contracts. Local firms include Pete Henry Removals, Hideaway Sinclair Gardens, Ketley, Telford, TF1 5HR on 01952 243202 or Pete Henry, Hideaway/Sinclair Gardens, Ketley, Telford, TF1 5HR Phone: 01952 243202.
Environmental searches are computed from archived information and given recent weather changes e g the major flooding in 2012 in the Midlands are they the best way to find out enough about the Leegomery future flood risk?
Property environmental searches applied for by the solicitor in Leegomery will also include the more thorough search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.
Property purchasers sometimes also converse with a local resident for additional more peace of mind.
Do I have to be present at viewings?
No, you don’t. It used to be the case that estate agencies were happy to leave the homeowner to show prospective buyers around. However, this has now been dispensed with because they won’t necessarily have the property skills and experience of dealing with and selling to a buyer. Therefore, the preference is usually that you should not be present in the home at all, although this can obviously be difficult with infirmity, working from home, and childcare.
The best option is to discuss this with the estate agent when you appoint them, so that you are aware of their expectations for each viewing, and they will be able to work around you if you have to be present in the home. Whether you are present or not, you should still take care not to be too messy and tidy up as much as possible prior to the viewing appointment, so that good impressions are maintained.

Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty avoidance. These schemes are highly expensive and unreliable.
What is gazumping?
Gazumping takes place when a seller accepts an offer, then dismisses it, choosing instead a higher offer. It may happen weeks into a sale. There is almost always a danger of gazumping. Instructing your property solicitor as early as possible to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.
