I have given 8 weeks notice to my existing landlord and have to vacate my rented property in Clacton On Sea by the end of next month. Conveyancing for my house purchase has just started. Is it possible to complete in 5 weeks as I wish to avoid having to move into temporary accommodation?
The normal practice is not to serve notice for your tenancy until you have exchanged. If you have not already done so, contact to your conveyancer and request that they apply pressure on the other solicitors, try to an agreed time frame that everyone will work towards
My wife and I are intent on selling our property in Clacton On Sea and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A high street Clacton On Sea lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used an online conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Clacton On Sea. We have lived in Clacton On Sea for six years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
I have justfound out that Stirling Law have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Clacton On Sea for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I establish that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest way to see if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Clacton On Sea conveyancing specialists.
I'm buying my first flat in Clacton On Sea with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not inform my lawyer about this side-deal as it could affect my loan with Barclays Direct. 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.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Clacton On Sea is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
