Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Gospel Oak

My grandson is about to exchange on a house that has just been built in Gospel Oak with a mortgage from UBS. His lawyer has said that there is a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?

The form is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the UBS 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 UBS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

Is it correct that all Gospel Oak CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel?

Some major banks and building societies now make use of the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to remain on their panels.

When it comes to lenders such as Nottingham, do Gospel Oak solicitors incur a fee to be on the conveyancing panel?

We are not aware of any bank fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

My husband and I have organised the release of further funds on our home loan from Co-operative as we wish to conduct improvements to our property in Gospel Oak. Do we need to select a bricks and mortar Gospel Oak solicitor on the Co-operative conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?

Co-operative don't usually require firms on their approved list of lawyers to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in Gospel Oak differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Gospel Oak come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because house builders in Gospel Oak typically acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Gospel Oak or who has acted in the same development.

Given that I am about to spend 450k on 3 bedroom house in Gospel Oak I would like to talk to a conveyancer concerning thetransaction prior to instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the conveyancer due to be conducting your conveyancing in Gospel Oak.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important individual, not a case reference. The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for your conveyancing in Gospel Oak should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.

If all goes to plan we aim to complete our sale of a £125,000 garden flat in Gospel Oak in just under a week. The management company has quoted £324 for Certificate of Compliance, insurance certificate and 3 years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Gospel Oak?

Gospel Oak conveyancing on leasehold flats more often than not necessitates the buyer’s lawyer sending enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to respond to these enquiries the majority will be content to do so. They are entitled to levy a reasonable administration fee for answering questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the information that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some cases it is in excess of £800. The management information fee required by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration charges, without which the invoice is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that one has little option but to pay whatever is demanded should you wish to sell the property.

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such issues? Can you recommend a Gospel Oak conveyancing firm to assist?

Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a Gospel Oak conveyancing firm who can help.

The Tribunal assessed the value of the lease extension premium at £35,435 and rounded the figure to £35,500 This case related to 1 flat. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 64.77 years.
