It would be unwise to be seduced by the lowest Barkingside conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Barkingside. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Virgin Money have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
Given that your lender is Virgin Money your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements contained in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Virgin Money. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Virgin Money where a lease fails to satisfy these specifications. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to Barkingside.
I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, RBS are being a right pain. The Barkingside solicitor who is on the RBS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but RBS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do RBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that RBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why RBS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
We are planning on selling our property in Barkingside and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Barkingside. We have lived in Barkingside for many years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
I'm buying my first flat in Barkingside benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my conveyancer about the deal as it could put at risk my loan with the lender. 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.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Barkingside prior to retaining conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. Our surveyor has said that some lenders will refuse to give a loan on such a house.
