Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Groby

Our grandson is buying a house that has just been built in Groby with a mortgage from Santander. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?

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

My flat in Groby is up for sale and I have a buyer. Will the lawyer need to be required to be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Nationwide conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently at the moment.

We are planning to move home in October. Should my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Groby. Conveyancing firm was found prior to coming across this website.

On the afternoon of completion you can collect the keys from your property agent however this can only be done when the sellers conveyancers inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be given over. You can advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Groby or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Groby.

Can I be sure that the Groby conveyancing solicitor on the Clydesdale panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Groby obtaining recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advise that you speak with the lawyer conducting your transaction.

I am purchasing a property in Groby. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Virgin Money be concerned?

As your lender is Virgin Money your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Virgin Money. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Virgin Money where a lease fails to meet these requirements. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not isolated to Groby.

How does conveyancing in Groby differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Groby come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because developers in Groby tend to buy the site, 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 property lawyers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Groby or who has acted in the same development.

I have just started marketing my ground floor flat in Groby. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have recently had a quarterly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?

The sensible thing to do is discharge the service charge as you normally would given that all ground rent and maintenance payments should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
