Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bow

I am approaching an exchange on a property in Bow and my mum and dad have transferred the 10% deposit to my solicitor. I am now told that as the deposit has not come from me my conveyancer needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. I am advised that, in also acting for the mortgage company he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I disclosed to the lender regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?

Your property lawyer is duty bound to clarify with mortgage company to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only notify this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

It is 10 years ago since I purchased my home in Bow. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been retained on the sale but I am unable to track down my title deeds. Will this cause complications?

You need not be too concerned. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by the mortgage company or they may be archived with the conveyancers who handled the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Bow involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

My colleague advised me that where I am buying in Bow I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

A search of this type is occasionally quoted for as part of the standard Bow conveyancing searches. It is a large report of about 40 pages, listing and detailing significant information about Bow around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data concerning Bow.

I am buying a new build house in Bow with a mortgage from Nottingham Building Society. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The estate agent suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about the deal as it would adversely affect my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.

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.

I opted to have a survey carried out on a house in Bow ahead of retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor has said that some banks may refuse to issue a mortgage on a flying freehold property.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements for example to Nationwide. If you e-mail us we can look into this further with the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Bow. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Bow to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.

I am using a search engine for the term on line conveyancing in Bow it shows results of numerous conveyancersin the vicinity. How do I determine which is the right solicitor for purchase transaction?

The ideal method of seeking a suitable conveyancer is through a trusted recommendation, so enquire of colleagues and relatives who have bought a property in Bow or the respected estate agent or mortgage broker. Charges for conveyancing in Bow differ, so it's a good idea to secure a minimum of four costs illustrations from varying types of law firms. Dont forget to clarify what costs in the quote includes.
