My god-son is about to exchange on a newly built flat in Ditchling with a mortgage from Clydesdale. His solicitor has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Clydesdale conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
I happen to be the only recipient of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Ditchling. The Ditchling property was put into my name in December. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in December. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be affected by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation is chiefly there to pick up on subsales or the quick reselling of properties.
is it true that all Ditchling solicitor practices on the Santander conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Santander approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the SRA. Many banks do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the practice would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
Planning on purchasing a apartment in Ditchling. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Ditchling conveyancing practitioner is on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
