My wife and I are due to complete buying a property in Chellaston but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree reparation from the owner in the sum of £2k taking the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement however Lloyds will not permit this. Why were they involved?
The conveyancer that is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel is required to disclose to Lloyds of any changes to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your solicitor to report the reduction to Lloyds then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Lloyds and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Chellaston.
Are all Chellaston Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing list of approved solicitors?
A selection of banks and building societies now use CQS as the kick off point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to remain on their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
My husband and I have arranged the release of further funds on our home loan from Lloyds as we wish to carry out a loft conversion to our house in Chellaston. Do we need to choose a local Chellaston solicitor on the Lloyds conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
Lloyds don't usually instruct a member of their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Lloyds list.
Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Chellaston. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I would like to complain about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.
four months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Chellaston took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I am purchasing a new build house in Chellaston with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my solicitor about the extras as it will impact my mortgage with the lender. 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.
