Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Clophill

I am selling my house in Clophill. Will my conveyancing practitioner need to be on the Barclays conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Barclays conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently in recent years.

Various internet forums that I have visited warn that are the primary reason for stalling in Clophill conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the most frequent causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Clophill.

I'm buying my first flat in Clophill benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The sale representative advised me not inform my solicitor about this side-deal as it may adversely affect my mortgage with Aldermore. 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.

Given that I will soon part with 450k on a terraced house in Clophill I wish to talk to a conveyancer regarding thetransaction in advance of appointing the firm. Can this be arranged?

Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the solicitor who will be carrying out your property ownership legalities in Clophill.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a case number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are quoted for your conveyancing in Clophill should be the figure that you end up paying.

My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent informed us that the seller will only go ahead if we use their chosen conveyancers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a high street solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Clophill

It is highly unlikely the sellers are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is going to damage their objectives. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to appoint your own,trusted Clophill conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will give the estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing targets demanded by head office.

My 20yr old son is embarking on her first house purchase, he had his mortgage in principle. After the offer was accepted on flat we called the mortgage institution to progress the mortgage application. We were shocked to learn that banks do not accept all conveyancing practitioner, they must be on their panel, is this right?

Banks normally restrict either the type or the number of conveyancing solicitors on their approved list of lawyers. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some have decided to limit the number of firms they use to represent them. You should note that lenders have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any Clophill conveyancing practitioner on their panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago and whilst there are differing views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry reveal that thousands of law firms only carry out one or two conveyances a year. Those supporting conveyancing panel cuts ask why law firms should have the right to be on a Lender panel when clearly, conveyancing is not their speciality. To put it another way; would you want a conveyancing solicitor to represent you if you were charged with a crime? Probably not.
