Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Cambourne

My fiance and I are planning to acquire a house in Cambourne and have appointed a Cambourne conveyancing practice. Within the last couple of days our conveyancer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report in anticipation of exchanging contracts shortly. Accord Mortgages Ltd have this afternoon contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our Cambourne conveyancer is not on their conveyancing panel. Please explain?

When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is usual for the purchasers' lawyers to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your lender and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on the bank's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Cambourne solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it may delay matters as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.

I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel solicitor as I would prefer to use a high street conveyancing solicitor in Cambourne?

You should check but the the probability is that allocate you one of their panel lawyers if you accept the "fee-free" offer. Contact the bank and ask if they allow a cash alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Cambourne.

I am purchasing a new build house in Cambourne benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it could put at risk my mortgage with HSBC 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.

How do I use your search facility to select a conveyancing solicitor in Cambourne on the approved list for my bank?

First choose a bank such as Nationwide Building Society, Coventry Building Society or Nottingham Building Society then specify your location a common one being Cambourne. Conveyancing firms in Cambourne and across England and Wales should be shown.

In sourcing the internet for the term on line conveyancing in Cambourne it brings up many conveyancersin the area. How do I determine which is the suitable conveyancer for purchase transaction?

The best method of seeking a suitable conveyancer is via personal referral, so seek the opinion of friends and family who have bought a property in Cambourne or a respected estate agent or mortgage broker. Costs for conveyancing in Cambourne vary, so it's sensible to obtain at least four quotes from different companies. Be sure to secure confirmation that the fees are fixed.

I pay a service charge for my flat in Cambourne. As a result of personal circumstances I slipped behind with remittance. I negotiated a clearance plan but there is still around £1750 remaining in arrears.

I am under pressure to sell and I am panicking this can jeopardize the sale if I have to pay off the amount due in advance. I'd like to sell up and subsequently discharge the arrears from the completion monies - is this practicable?

The property lawyer conducting your Cambourne sale will hopefully be in a position to negotiate with the appropriate parties, and agree with them whether or not they would accept settlement out of the completion monies. This is indicative of why it might be good to appoint a conveyancing practitioner in Cambourne as they are likely to enjoy an open line of communication with the management company.
