After what seems like an age a loan agreement from Nationwide for the remortgage of my 2 room flat is expected imminently. Could you put forward a low cost conveyancing practitioner in Arkley?

Optimistically, in going for cheap conveyancing, you will receive what you pay for and at worst it will result in you invoiced for extras and still not get the service required.

I am planning to move house in December. Should my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Arkley. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across your page.

On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the keys from the property agent but this should only happen once the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. Subsequently you can advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Arkley or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in Arkley.

I am expecting a OIP from Nottingham this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Nottingham recommend any Arkley solicitors on the Nottingham conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Arkley solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nottingham through the process.

I can not work out if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Arkley building society branch on various occasions and was reassured it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Arkley conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.

The conveyancer must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two specifications for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Will my solicitor be raising questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Arkley.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers conducting conveyancing in Arkley. Some people will buy a house in Arkley, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous searches that can be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better understanding of the risks in Arkley. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual inquiry of the seller to find out if the property has suffered from flooding. If the residence has been flooded in past which is not notified by the owner, then a purchaser may commence a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading reply. The buyer’s lawyers should also carry out an environmental search. This will higlight if there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be carried out.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my house can not be found. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Arkley 4 years ago are no longer around. Will I be able to sell the house?

These day there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer will be aware precisely where to look for all the relevant documentation so you can purchase or sell your house without a hitch. If copies can’t be located, your solicitor can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against future claims on the property.

I am buying a new build house in Arkley with a mortgage from Santander. The developers refused to budge 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 would put at risk my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.
