Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Charing Cross

I hired a local lawyer for my conveyancing in Charing Cross last week. After carefully reading the official terms of business it is apparent thatI am on the hook for costs even if the dealdoes not happen. Would I be best advised to use a web based conveyancing company promising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Charing Cross?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the fee levels will tend to be be uplifted to neutralise the transactions that do not proceed. Please beware that these deals rarely protect you from expenditure for example Charing Cross conveyancing search expenses.

We are about to exchange contracts for a ground floor flat in Charing Cross. We have hit a snag. The loan offer with The Mortgage Works runs out on 24/11/2022 but the owners are suggesting a completion date of 28/11/2022. Can one prolong the loan expiry date?

The best person to deal with your question is your solicitors who will assess if he or she is better off negotiating with the mortgage broker, owner’s lawyers, property agents or possibly all three based on what has happend in your transaction to date.

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Charing Cross. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I am buying my first flat in Charing Cross with a mortgage from Alliance & Leicester . The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about this side-deal as it may jeopardize my mortgage with Alliance & Leicester . Should I keep quiet?.

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.
