I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (6 years old) in Eastwood. The vast majority the appartments have already been disposed of. Do I need carry out the neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Eastwood?
If you getting a loan, your bank will need some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Eastwood conveyancing searches are for you to decide upon. Your solicitor, will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you demand that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or ask you to appoint a different lawyer for your conveyancing in Eastwood.
Various internet forums that I have frequented warn that are a common reason for delay in Eastwood house deals. 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 figure within the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are unlikely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Eastwood.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Eastwood with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The sale representative suggested that I not to tell my conveyancer about the extras as it could affect my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.

The solicitor and licensed conveyancing practices on our directory have advised us that they are on the mortgage company panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the lender panel. To date we have not been informed by either a mortgage company or a member of the public that the data about a specific Eastwood conveyancing solicitor being on the bank conveyancing panel is incorrect.
