It is is a decade since I acquired my house in Greenford. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been appointed on the sale but I can't locate the title deeds. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be kept by the lender or they may be in the possession of the lawyers who handled your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Greenford involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it is more tricky but is not insurmountable.
I am considering mortgaging my house in Greenford, does my lawyer need to be on the Yorkshire BS Solicitor panel?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel, but Yorkshire BS 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 transaction.
I'm buying a new build house in Greenford with a mortgage from Godiva Mortgages Ltd. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not reveal to my solicitor about this deal as it may affect my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent informed us that the owners will only go ahead if we use the agent's recommended solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street solicitor used to conveyancing in Greenford
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this ultimatum. Should the owner want ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is going to damage their objectives. Contact the owners directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to instruct your preferred Greenford conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will provide the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by senior management.
