It is 10 years ago since I acquired my house in Anlaby. Conveyancing solicitors have just been appointed on the sale but I can't track down my title deeds. Is this a problem?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be with the mortgage company or they could still be with the conveyancers who handled your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Anlaby involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
Having spent time reviewing mumsnet.com for a high-quality lawyer in Anlaby, many say that I must use a CQS kitemarked solicitor. What is CQS?
The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised quality mark for legal experts in home ownership transfers, trusted by some of the UK's major lenders. In 2011-12 the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML). CQS is not a scheme offered by the Council of Licensed Conveyancing. Anlaby is one of the many areas of the UK where there are Accredited solicitors.
Can I be sure that the Anlaby conveyancing solicitor on the Nottingham panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Anlaby getting recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always recommend that you speak with the lawyer handling your conveyancing.
Planning on purchasing a apartment in Anlaby. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Anlaby lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by TSB. Is it usual for TSB to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Anlaby is approved on their conveyancing panel? TSB have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for TSB to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the TSB conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I am purchasing my first flat in Anlaby with a loan from Yorkshire Building Society. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not inform my solicitor about the extras as it may adversely affect my mortgage with Yorkshire Building Society. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
