Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Heanor

I am nearing an exchange on a flat in Heanor and my parents have sent the ten percent deposit to my lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has not arrived from me my conveyancer needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the bank he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the bank regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?

Your conveyancing practitioner is duty bound to check with mortgage company to make sure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. The solicitor can only reveal this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Heanor conveyancing solicitors as well as nationwide property lawyers accross the UK have a duty under Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules to check the ID of any client with a view to satisfy themselves that clients are who they say they are.

Conveyancing clients will need to produce two forms of certified ID; proof of identity (typically a Passport or Driving Licence) and proof of address (typically a Utility Bill no more than three months).

Evidence of source of funds is also required under the money laundering laws as solicitors have a duty to check that the monies you are using to acquire a property (whether it be the deposit for exchange or the full purchase amount where you are buying mortgage free) has come from an acceptable source (such as an inheritance) as opposed to the product of criminal behaviour.

We had appointed conveyancing lawyers based in Heanor on the Barclays solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a separate sum for dealing with the Barclays mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Barclays?

As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your solicitor may levy a fee for this. This charge is not set by Barclays but by your Heanor conveyancer. Plenty of firms on the Barclays panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some firms include it on their overall fee.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nationwide. Heanor conveyancing lawyers have been selected. How long does it take for Nationwide to send the offer to the property lawyer?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Nationwide conducted the valuation? Have you informed Nationwide as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
