Your conveyancer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Hadfield will sometimes reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit categories of alterations or necessitated the permission of a 3rd party. Some works need local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be wise to check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
Is it the case that all Hadfield conveyancing solicitors on the TSB conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the TSB approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Many mortgage companies do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the organisation would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
The deeds to our house can not be found. The lawyers who did the conveyancing in Hadfield 10 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?
Assuming you have a registered title the details of your proprietorship will be recorded by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is possible to execute a search at the Land Registry, locate your property and get current copies of the property title for less than a fiver. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually hold a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for £20 inclusive of VAT.
I'm buying my first flat in Hadfield with a loan from National Westminster Bank. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not reveal to my lawyer about the extras as it could jeopardize my mortgage with National Westminster 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%.
