Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hereford

My nephew is about to exchange on a house that has just been built in Hereford with a home loan from Leeds Building Society. His solicitor has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?

The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

Do commercial conveyancing searches disclose planned roadworks that may impact a commercial premises in Hereford?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Hereford will order a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers spend in sourcing accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Hereford. The search result provides definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Hereford.

For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Hereford it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. The absence of identifying developments where adoption procedures have not been dealt with adequately can cause delays to Hereford commercial conveyancing transactions as well as present a risk to future intentions for the site. These searches are not ordered for domestic conveyancing in Hereford.

How does conveyancing in Hereford differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Hereford come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because builders in Hereford typically purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Hereford or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Hereford ahead of appointing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies will not give a mortgage on a flying freehold house.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Nationwide. If you contact us we can check with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Hereford. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for some conveyancing in Hereford. I have land on a site which appears to be the ideal solution If there is a chance to get all formalities done via email that would be ideal. Should I be wary? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

What type of property do your Hereford conveyancing quotes apply to?

The quotes provided are only relevant to standard residential property in England & Wales. If you have any different needs such as industrial or agricultural land or commercial conveyancing in Hereford do contact us to discuss this further .
