Our grandson is in the process of securing a house that has just been built in Fishponds with a home loan from Aldermore. His solicitor has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?
The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Aldermore 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 Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
I just acquired a flat at auction in Fishponds. Conveyancing is needed. What is next?
Having to all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you now have to appoint a conveyancing practitioner as a matter of urgency as you now have a pending a drop dead date to complete the transaction. Every auction property will have a bespoke auction pack. This will include most,if not all of the documents that your lawyer will need. Where you are dealing with leasehold premises the conveyancing pack should provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation pertinent to a leasehold property. You need to hand this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor at the earliest opportunity. Do make sure that that you have the requisite funding in place to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
is it true that all Fishponds solicitor practices on the HSBC conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of mortgage companies do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the practice would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
