Is it possible for conveyancing in Hedon to be finalised within 3 weeks?
First, If you are under time constraints to exchange it is advisable to make sure that your solicitor is familiar with the area as they will have local contacts and knowledge. It is even conceivable that they may have conducted otherhouses in the same street. You would be best advised to use a Hedon conveyancing lawyer. Second, check that the conveyancing firm is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is claimed that just under twenty per cent of Hedon conveyancing transactions are delayed or derailed after discovering a purchaser’s lawyer was not on their mortgage lender’s list of approved solicitors. In many cases this discovery resulted in the conveyancing being held up by as much as three weeks. It is believed that this issue affects approximately 100,000 home moves every year. Most Hedon conveyancing practices can not act for certain lenders so do check at the outset.
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Hedon and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Hedon conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a national conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Hedon. Having lived in Hedon for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You need to check with 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 have todaydiscovered that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Hedon for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I check that the property is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to check if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Hedon conveyancing specialists.
I am buying my first flat in Hedon with a mortgage from Skipton Building Society. The developers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not disclose to my solicitor about this side-deal as it would put at risk my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.
