Me and my fiance are hoping to acquire a 3 bedroom flat in Dartmouth with a mortgage. We like our Dartmouth conveyancer, however the bank advise she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the lender panel firms or retain our Dartmouth property lawyer as well as pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We consider that this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Dartmouth conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
We just had an offer accepted to purchase with Melton Mowbray Building Society. We have called around locally yet cant to find a Dartmouth conveyancing firm on the Melton Mowbray Building Society panel. Could you help?
Feel free to make the most of the search tool on this web page. Pick the building society and type Dartmouth or your preferred area and you will be presented with a number of lawyer based in Dartmouth or nearest you.
I am purchasing a new build house in Dartmouth with a mortgage from Virgin Money. The sellers would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not to tell my solicitor about the side-deal as it could affect my mortgage with the bank. 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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Dartmouth is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Dartmouth are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Dartmouth you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Dartmouth may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
How do I use your search tool to choose a conveyancing solicitor in Dartmouth on the panel for my lender?
1st choose a bank such as Santander, Coventry Building Society or Alliance & Leicester then type in your location for example Dartmouth. Conveyancing organisations in Dartmouth and across England and Wales should be listed.
In my capacity as executor for the will of my aunt I am disposing of a property in Monmouth but live in Dartmouth. My solicitor (approximately 260 kilometers awayneeds me to execute a stat dec before completion. Can you recommend a conveyancing solicitor in Dartmouth to attest this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you should not be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Dartmouth based
