Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Camberwell

My nephew is about to exchange on a new build apartment in Camberwell with a home loan from HSBC. His conveyancer has said that there is a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the HSBC conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the HSBC conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

Should conveyancers request an advanced payment for conveyancing in Camberwell?

If you are buying a property in Camberwell your solicitor will request that you put them with funds to cover the search fees. This will be the total of the cost of the Local Authority Search. When the deposit is payable against the sale price then this will be needed immediately prior to exchange of contracts. The final balance that is needed should be transferred shortly before completion.

Your conveyancer will check the deeds as conveyancing in Camberwell can occasionally identify restrictions in the title documents which prevent categories of changes or need the permission of a 3rd party. Certain additions require local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations.

It would be sensible to check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

At last I have had an offer on an apartment in Camberwell agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on somewhere, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Camberwell. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with TSB going?

It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Camberwell conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the TSB approved list. As to the next phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of buyers would apply for the mortgage with TSB and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their property lawyer to press on with the conveyancing in Camberwell.
