My nephew is purchasing a newly built flat in Gloucester with a mortgage from Virgin Money. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. 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 Virgin Money conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
Just acquired a detached house in Gloucester , how long will it take for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Gloucester conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be sure that my ownership is recorded.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Gloucester registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. At present roughly three quarters of submission are completed within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration takes place once the purchaser has moved in to the property therefore an expedited registration is not usually top priority but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
