Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Goodmayes

As a FTB what is the most important advice you can impart concerning purchase conveyancing in Goodmayes?

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Goodmayes and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of opportunity for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the home moving process. For example, the seller, selling agent and on occasion your mortgage company. Appointing a law firm for your conveyancing in Goodmayes an important selection as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the transaction whose responsibility is to act in your best interests and to keep you safe.

On occasion a third party with a vested interest may try and persuade you that you should follow their advice. As an example, the selling agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your conveyancer is dragging his heels. Or your mortgage broker may tell you to do something that is against your conveyancers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

I am considering applying for a Nationwide mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Goodmayes with 60% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Nationwide ?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Nationwide conveyancing panel, but Nationwide would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

What can a local search inform me regarding the house I am purchasing in Goodmayes?

Goodmayes conveyancing often commences with the ordering local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search organisations for example Xpress Legal The local search plays a central role in many a Goodmayes conveyancing purchase; as long as you wish to avoid any unpleasant surprises after you move into your property. The search will reveal data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of thirteen subject areas.

I am buying a new build house in Goodmayes benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my solicitor about the extras as it could impact my loan with Nottingham Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

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.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one round the corner in Goodmayes I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Goodmayes in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

What can I do to determine who is the owner of a property in Goodmayes?

Assuming that the property is registered with HMLR, and you have the information of the address of the premises, you should be able to view details from the HM Land Registry of the registered owner for a a minimal charge.
