Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Falconwood

My partner and I are acquiring a newly built apartment in Falconwood and my solicitor is informing me that she is duty bound to the mortgage company to reveal incentives from the builder. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to exchange contracts and I don't want to delay the conveyancing. Is my lawyer right?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancer. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

We are looking to buy a house and require a conveyancing solicitor in Falconwood who is on the HSBC approved panel. Can you recommend a local firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for HSBC . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Falconwood.

I happen to be the single recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Falconwood. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in August. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in August. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be impacted by that. many lenders would take a sensible view as this obligation chiefly exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.

Can you point me to a directory of Santander panel solicitors in Falconwood on the Building Society Association’s Website?

No. There is no such tool on the CML or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of banks make their panel listings viewable over the internet. If you are seeking to appoint a Falconwood conveyancing practitioner on the Santander please make the most of our tool.

I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Co-operative are being a right pain. The Falconwood solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Co-operative are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Co-operative have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Co-operative may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I need some expedited conveyancing in Falconwood as I have a deadline to exchange contracts in less than 4 weeks. A home loan is not required. Can I avoid the conveyancing searches to save money and time?

If.Given you are are a mortgage free buyer you are at free not to do searches although no solicitor would advise that you don't. With plenty of history conveyancing in Falconwood the following are instances of issues that can arise and therefore affect the marketability of the property: Refused Planning Applications, Outstanding Charges, Outstanding Grants, Road Schemes,...

I used Arc property Solicitors a few years ago for my conveyancing in Falconwood. Now, I need my files however the law firm has closed. What do I do?

You should call the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) to assist in tracing your conveyancing files. They can be contacted on please contact on 0870 606 2555. Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry. You will need to provide the SRA with as much information as possible to assist their search, including the name and address in Falconwood of the conveyancing firm of solicitors you previously used, the name of conveyancing solicitor with whom you had dealings, and the date on which you last had dealings with the firm.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Falconwood in advance of retaining conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor has said that some lenders may not grant a loan on such a home.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements from Halifax. Should you wish to telephone us we can look into this further with the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Falconwood. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Falconwood especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Falconwood.
