We are buying our first home. Our solicitor has texted usto see if we wish to purchase additional conveyancing searches. We are really unsure what's relevant for conveyancing in Great Sankey
The extent of Great Sankey conveyancing searches should be triggered based primarily on the premises, the location, the likelihood of any of these risks, your familiarity of the locality and risks, your general approach to risk. What is important is that you properly understand what information the searches could provide. Then you can make a decision if you personally think you need that information. Should you be uncertain, ask the property lawyer to explain.
I am purchasing a new build house in Great Sankey with a mortgage from The Mortgage Works. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my solicitor about the side-deal as it could affect my loan 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.
I was advised by numerous selling agents in Great Sankey to get a quote from a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to recommend your site over alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t give any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
My uncle has suggested that I appoint his lawyers for conveyancing in Great Sankey. Do I follow his guidance?

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Great Sankey. Before I get started I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Great Sankey - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
