I am acquiring a house mortgage free in Eden Park. I have resided for the previous Seventeen years in Eden Park. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I have knowledge of the road and vicinity intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then the vast majority of the Eden Park conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your solicitor will ’encourage you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she has a professional duty to take that path of encouragement . Do take into account; if you are going to sell the house at a future date, it will likely be be of relevance to your future purchaser what the searches determine. There are plenty of instances where premises with functional issues can still throw up unfavourable search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Eden Park will provide you some constructive guidance in this regard.
I am considering applying for a Lloyds mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Eden Park with 65 per cent LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Lloyds ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Lloyds will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
Just acquired a detached house in Eden Park , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Eden Park conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check the land registry aspects are dealt with.
As far as conveyancing in Eden Park is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. At present roughly three quarters of such applications are completed within two weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Historically registration occurs after the buyer is living at the property thus 'speed' is not always primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I am purchasing my first flat in Eden Park with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent advised me not inform my solicitor about this side-deal as it could impact my loan with Birmingham Midshires. 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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Eden Park is where the house is located. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Eden Park are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Eden Park you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Eden Park may decide 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 premises.
