We are purchasing a newly constructed apartment in Harefield and my conveyancer is telling me that she is duty bound to the lender to disclose incentives from the seller. I am under pressure to sign contracts and I don't want to prolong deal. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your lawyer. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
Having sold my house in Harefield last September yet the purchaser is calling me to say her lawyer needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale legalities now that I have sold?
Following your disposal your conveyancer should forward the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. Depending on the transaction, your lawyer should also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been discharged to the purchasers conveyancers. There are no post completion steps peculiar conveyancing in Harefield.
We are planning to move home in July. Should my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you recommend a removal company in Harefield. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen prior to coming across this page.
On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the house keys from your estate agent but this should only take place once the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be passed over. Subsequently you can advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. We do not suggest a specific removal organisation but can assist you in choosing a conveyancing in Harefield or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Harefield.
Is there a list of Leeds Building Society panel conveyancers in Harefield on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such tool on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. Very few mortgage companies make their panel listings open the public on the web. If you are looking for a Harefield conveyancer on the Leeds Building Society please make the most of our facility.
I have instructed a Harefield solicitor having made sure that they are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Bank of Ireland will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Bank of Ireland will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Harefield surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

Please supply a car parking plan. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?

Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, but the property agent has warned us that the owners will only move forward if we use their preferred lawyers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family solicitor used to conveyancing in Harefield
We suspect that the seller is not behind this ultimatum. Should the owner want ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Harefield conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide their estate agent a commission or achieve conveyancing figures set by HQ.
