Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Forest Gate

We are nearing an exchange on a property in Forest Gate and my parents have sent the ten percent deposit to my lawyer. I am now told that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my conveyancer needs to make a notification to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the bank he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I informed the bank about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for this now to be an issue?

Your property lawyer is duty bound to clarify with the bank to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only disclose this to your lender if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

We previously selected conveyancing lawyers located in Forest Gate on the Yorkshire BS solicitor panel. They have just billed me a supplemental charge for the legal aspects of the Yorkshire BS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Yorkshire BS?

Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your solicitor can charge a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Yorkshire BS but by your Forest Gate property lawyer. Numerous firms on the Yorkshire BS panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but some practices include it on their overall fee.

My offer on a semi in Forest Gate has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have placed an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other properties booked. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Forest Gate. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Barclays?

It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Forest Gate conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must check that your solicitor is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent steps this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Barclays and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancer to press on with the conveyancing in Forest Gate.

I am purchasing a new build house in Forest Gate with a loan from Nationwide Building Society. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The sale representative suggested that I not to tell my conveyancer about this deal as it could jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.
