I have just started taking steps with the intention of swapping over from my domestic home loan to a BTL Barclays mortgage.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the Santander Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Blackwood?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

Will our conveyancer be raising enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Blackwood.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Blackwood. There are those who buy a property in Blackwood, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that may be initiated by the buyer or by their conveyancers which can give them a better appreciation of the risks in Blackwood. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard inquiry of the seller to discover if the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the seller, then a buyer may bring a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading reply. The buyer’s lawyers will also commission an environmental search. This will indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be made.

I am purchasing my first flat in Blackwood benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent advised me not disclose to my lawyer about the side-deal as it may jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

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.

Why is New Build conveyancing in Blackwood more costly?

Acquiring a brand new home is completely distinct from the standard house buying conveyancing in Blackwood. For a start sellers normally insist contracts to exchange very quickly, the result being a a great deal of pressure on your conveyancer to ensure everything is in order. Furthermore new build properties frequently involve examination of adoption of highways, drains, planning considerations, building warranties or architects certificates. Mortgage company obligations are also more detailed. Given the complex nature of the process for these types of properties, the conveyancing new build fees are higher than normal.
