My conveyancer has informed me that defective lease insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Hampton Wick conveyancing?
The right level of defective lease indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Santander and Skipton Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.
is it true that all Hampton Wick solicitors on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Some mortgage companies do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the firms would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
About to purchase apartment in Hampton Wick. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Hampton Wick property lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.
My partner and I are planning on selling our home in Hampton Wick and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Hampton Wick lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Hampton Wick. Having lived in Hampton Wick for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
I'm purchasing my first flat in Hampton Wick with a mortgage from Santander. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my conveyancer about the deal as it could impact 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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Hampton Wick is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Hampton Wick are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Hampton Wick you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hampton Wick may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
